Nice and cool this morning.
Bunch of people coming down early made me wonder if there was an event I didn't know about.
Today's Colorful Socks prize goes to this rider:
|What is that... Tutti-Frutti?|
We got passed by a LOT of people today.
Wildlife Encounter: Two deer ran across the narrow Summit Wall in front of me while I was climbing. First an adult, and then a young one. They ran from the right side up into that space between the up and down one-lane roads. I was careful in case there were more hiding in the bush waiting to take me out.
Coming down, I suddenly got a very strange and severe knee pain. It was right on my kneecap and I could move it but I couldn't put any pressure on the pedal. I tried standing and it was even worse. I imagined this being the beginning of the end of my cycling days, but then it went away... not completely but enough for me to ignore it.
I almost challenged this guy to a track standing competition. He wasn't bad but he needed to see what it's supposed to look like. Then the light turned green.
Checked my tires when I got home. After every ride it's getting a little closer to needing to put new ones on... good for at least another ride.
