Hoosier Pass between Alma and Breckenridge

I was delighted to find this YouTube video by StromRoadie of the ride up and over Hoosier Pass, from south to north. The camera is mounted on the bike rather than on the rider’s helmet, which makes for great lean angles. I find myself tilting my head to compensate and looking as far as possible through the turns, just like I was riding.

The gravel road that flashes by on the left just as the video starts is the Park County road that I take to visit my friends Tim and Linda Balough.

Inexplicably, the video ends before we get to the last tight right switchback at the northern foot of Hoosier Pass. Even so, it’s a happy reminder of past and future rides.
