And they’re off!
Matt and Eron left Golden this morning on their much-anticipated motorcycle tour of Colorado. Today’s destination: Leadville, a Victorian-era frontier mining town where the guys are spending the night.
“We rode 150 miles today, all off road,” he texted at about 6 pm. “Amazing! But it’s freezing.” (WeatherUnderground is reporting 27 degrees as the high tonight there with a 30 percent chance of snow.)
We’ll have more from our man in the Rockies tomorrow. Until then, enjoy some of photos of Day One, as well as a few selects from Colorado photographer James Holden’s shots of Matt and Eron getting preparing to launch.
