On The Hill: Jumping back in the (bike) saddle on a real beaut of a Monday morning

VIDEO: After a wild, sunny weekend of corn skiing and general merriment, this Monday morning seems like a perfect time to break out the road bike for the first ride of the year. Aspen Times roving adventure correspondent Corby Anderson takes his road bike on a shakedown cruise down the Rio Grande for a cup o’ joe.

On the Hill is brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.
