Thanks! Bummer side, the Flip only allows high and low volume so I can't mix like movie maker.

You ever encounter cars "racing" around those corners through the hills? That 2nd to last pic gives me chills thinking about some idiot coming around the turn sideways, and bam.... hello cyclists! Be safe out there.

Looks like a beautiful place to ride. Although with all the hills I encounter here in SC(which is absolutely zero) I'd much prefer going down the hill, than up.

Oh yeah, weekdays not so bad, weekends crazy with cars and motorcycles. Good thing is that it's so quiet, everything echoes so you can hear motorcycles and cars coming from a mile away. IF I couldn't, I wouldn't be in the center like that!

Thanks!...yeah, these are the nice short ez days. I'm working the shoulder back into it and Grrly has been off the bike for nearly 4 months (taking care of mother after surgery). We usually do the 21 mile climb (hear it at the rest with the guys) but this was a "working back into it" day!

Grrly is the gal that did Ride Around the Bear with me last year, 100 miles 10,000 ft. She completed the ride!
