Saw Peter coming down, he must have started really early.
Beautiful day, a little cold... should have been a lot more riders up there.
Brought a screwdriver to check my new cleats but my install was pretty solid, just a quarter turn on a couple of the screws to tighten 'em up.
JB went home and I went down SGR for another ascent. Even colder on the Easy Side.
Rest of the ride went well, but JB called me later and said he got hassled by a ranger on NGR. Apparently there is a new guy in town and his objective is to intimidate cyclists rather than to enforce safety. We'd also heard about a woman who was getting a speeding ticket but when she started to cry, Ranger Hasslebad let her go with a warning. Apparently he's also driving in front of descending cyclists to force them to ride the speed he wants them to. He drives a State Parks vehicle, but not a pickup. If you've had a Ranger Hasslebad experience - put it in the comments or send me an e-mail and I'll document this clown's crackpottery. It'd be great to have a photo, but until he either gets re-assigned or smartens up, ride like you're expecting to see him around every corner. And as always, keep it safe and courteous.
