Took another Monday afternoon off and rode Skyline Drive with a friend. My first real "mountain" ride I think. Compared to Mt Weather these climbs were lllloooonnnggggg.
About halfway up any one of the climbs, unable to get enough air and legs burning, I was asking myself why I would do such a thing. As soon as we finished.. I was thinking about when we could do it again!!!
Cycling is fookin awesome.
The profile and grade from my Garmin.. grade gets a bit wonky at times.. max was probably 12 or so.
The Scattante at altitude..
yes, I was actually riding the bike...
Bit hazy, but awesome fall color
Helmet hair shadow after the descent to the parking lot..
