Some of the other riders today were FLYING up the mountain! It was really impressive!
It took me a while to get all the way up, but I had a great ride today. Can't wait for next weekend!

Congratulations.
When did you start your ride? Did you go up the North Gate or South Gate?
Just wondering if I saw you up there.

I probably passed by you on my way down. I was wearing a white Specialized jersey with the tribal artwork.
