I took a nice short ride with my sister today, about six miles. She's a beginner, riding an old Schwinn mountain bike, and she really enjoyed the leisurely cruise!
It also gave me a chance to ride the whole thing in my high gear, and really work on my form and my climbing methods.
It was great!
SWEET!!! How is it up there? a lot of snow left?
In places. The roads are dry (except during the snowstorms we're STILL getting!) But the ski area still has a good 40" base at the top, and there's some banks still hanging on. Its definitely day-to-day as far as cycling weather goes!
