Foggy and windy at the Gate. No shorts today. JB was late so I started... opposite of last week.
Plenty of riders despite the weather.
Fog went away well below 1,000 ft, but the wind got worse.
I decided if JB didn't show up I could quit at Junction.
Sweet smells and bright colors on The Mountain.
|Well some folks went with shorts I guess.|
JB showed up at Junction and we went up. He might have quit also if I weren't there.
|JB likes to ride scary-close to the edge.|
I'm never sorry though when I don't quit.
This guy started up The Wall with me and I challenged him to a sprint.
Talked to him later and he said it was his first ride up Diablo.
There was a car revving the engine behind us the last 200m.
Descent was a little spooky... that's always true for windy days.
