Four riders. Two different paths. One epic journey.
It's widely known that the Outside sales/marketing team and most of our friends are often labeled as socially active long before we're called physically active. That's not to say we aren't active—but let's say that we maintain a strong balance and leave the real core stuff to our editors. We often hit last call on a powder eve; choose to rally our clients for a beer-based "meeting" versus a morning run; and work to make après a pretty solid portion of the ski day. So the fact that we decided to grab two friends and sign up to ride our bikes 446 miles across Colorado this week is both exhilarating and totally terrifying. Here is how Director of Marketing Jen Wittman and Associate Publisher Kristen Ude came to Riding the Rockies.
