Hillbasher & I on GMR (Saturday 7/20/13)
Same ol GMR ride to the shack, 8 mile climb with 2300 ft. Crazy Hillbasher hasn't been on the for 9 months but he was happy to get on and head up GMR. I figure we'd do a nice cruise up since neither one of us is ready for a climb but he did it and made it look rather easy. I know if I were of the bike for 9 months, I'd be struggling just to sit on the bike for 5 minutes much less pedal.
Nice day for a GMR ride, cloudy and cool. Didn't see the sun peek out till we were near the top. LOTS of riders up there today. I guess some event going on. We stopped 4 miles up for a stretch and in a matter of a couple of minutes we saw gangs of riders roll by.
As I always say, the GMR riders are a different breed. Much more encouraging riders than other places we ride.

Probably was not the right ride for the first time on the bike in 9 months, but I enjoyed being up there as always. It was good to see and talk with Matt and GMR. Think I will try getting a few flat miles in, and then head back up, maybe something stupid like the Village or at least to Peacock Saddle.
Wife and I passed your crew while you were resting at the shack. ReMAX kits everywhere on the mountain that day.
