Along with 12 other BF members from the NorCal forum, I am now the CHAMPION OF MY OWN MIND!!!!
The NorCal jerseys came in (not mine, I'm in the reorder) and a celebration ride was planned up Mt. Diablo. I last road up it in 89 or so. Because it's filipn' steep, that's why. It's taken me this long to man up and try again.
I lived through it, even the 200 yard straight-up killer wall at the end. Didn't punk. Only stopped at the junction to regroup.
A good time was had by all. And did I mention I made it and didn't puke?
