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.

It would be hard to tell who is who as there are usually a few women on the mountain but this day, there were a ton. :D
