Flatted on the way to the Gate - near that Korean church... called JB and told him not to wait.
Wildlife Encounter: turkeys near the Dumpster Gate
Only saw about three other riders on the way up.
At Junction, JB's old orthopedic surgeon was there; he remembered JB's clavicle crack and knew the exact place. He had been a more serious cyclist at one point but was having neck problems so he bought a custom Calfee bamboo bike that allowed him to ride more upright... pretty cool looking geezer dream bike.
Much warmer by the time we went down.
