    Saturday ride and GIna, CLIMBING?

    Did 44 miles with a couple of SoCal members. GrrlyRida and fellow CLyde TomBunn. The ride including part of GMR, an 8 mile 2200 ft climb. Gina struggled but she made it. She actually volunteered to do the ride!

    TB and Gina coming up!


    Too easy for the GrrrL!

    A little tricky taking pics on 25-30 mph switchback descents but I managed!


    Gina making her way to the mtn.

    Grrly on GMR, no sweat!


    Grrly and Gina on the downhill attack!

    Too fast on the descent. The UFO never caught them!

    Gina on the descent, Grrly is GONE!

    Looks like great fun if you can do it. I went on a ride last week where the little hills just about killed me, and today it was the wind! Maybe if I lived somewhere like that, I'd be more used to it.

    youre very very very lucky to have terrain like that, near you. the midwest is kinda flat in a lot of places and it takes some thought to find much elevation.

    nice pics... living in FL now, it's amazing how you come to miss terrain... though after one climb, I probably wouldn't miss it anymore.
