And given the hour and the fact that I have one more big ride on the docket tomorrow before getting rained out for the weekend, there's not time for many words. A few photos will have to suffice.
I met up with Fixie Dave for a great ride/bike-toting hike the other day.
After parting ways with Dave, I climbed to that annoying Wilderness boundary and enjoyed some evening scenery while laboring up a climb that hits 30% grade. Seriously.
Yesterday's combination of an incredibly remote route, unknown territory, 50 mph wind gusts all afternoon, and skies that threatened to open up at any second left me feeling isolated and helpless. But all one can do is keep on the gas and hope for the best.
