Clearly this called for a Saturday morning bike ride.
Got to the Gate and met Rick and then realized my front tire was flat so I changed it while waiting for JB to show up but he never did although Dudley rode by before I was done.
Road was wet but the sun was up and it was kind of windy in spots so it was some good riding.
Front tire went flat AGAIN near Son of Chainbuster... I just pumped it up and made it to the Junction for another change and aren't I smart for carrying two spares?!? Junction ranger said the road was closed at Juniper but it would be OK to go around the barrier so up we went. There were quite a few cars up there already and a steady stream still going up around us.
