Up before it rains

When and where have I heard that before? Left the house for GMR a little after 2 PM this afternoon. Was expecting lousy road conditions after all the rain last week, but was met with only some dirt and small rocks in places. Not bad at all. Met a guy on top that had passed me on the way up (is there any other type than those that pass me? No LOL) We talked hiking and mountain climbing instead of bikes and riding. Unusual and nice for a change. The ride down was cold but not unbearable. Clouds made it look like it could rain then instead of waiting till Tuesday like the forecast. Good ride.

Did you just do GMR or GRR as well?

GMR to just past the CalTrans shack. Starting as late as I do and being slower than anyone else in Southern Calif., that is my couple times a week ride of preference. I get 22.3 miles and over 2500 feet of climbing in from the house.
