We chased the two riders in front of us most of the way up.
There was a wind storm last night and lots of branches were down.
At the Junction Rick asked what was next. What I was hoping for was anything but the Summit but if I said that out loud it'd be the Summit for sure so I didn't say anything and it was Summit anyway. I took off my tights and rolled them up and stuck them in my jersey pocket. It was really getting warm.
We took it pretty easy on Summit Road.
Dudley Driveby: in the Blue Oak Speedway. First sighting in several rides.
I took a preparation lap around the Lower Parking Lot before I started up the Wall; I usually need that extra bit of courage from my suitcase.
Rick and I found these cool helmet decorations.
