SHORTS! Didn't even need my windbreaker after about 8:30
DiabloShoutout to Blog Reader Mike, who rode his motorcycle to volunteer for trail maintenance.
I tried a new setting on my Contour action cam - I thought maybe a higher FPS would give me better options for snipping photos from the video - but the photos aren't as good. See for yourself.
My knee started to complain near the Ranger House. Right when I got to Sunset I decided to listen to it. Not the kind of aggravating niggling pain of over-use... the kind of sharp jolt of pain that comes at random intervals for no good reason. Turned around and it even got a little worse on the way down.
Bikes everywhere enjoying the beautiful weather.
Including some big groups coming up on my descent.
Bonus Extra fun story:
Long-time blog readers will remember when I had my unique Masi fixed gear commuter stolen from my home while I was recovering from my broken pelvis three years ago.
Well Diablo Wife and Diablo Daughter were having lunch at a local establishment and they see some guy ride up and lock his bike that looked exactly like mine so they sneak a photo to me. Well it could've been mine I guess - if he changed the handlebars and brake levers and saddle and fender... but on closer inspection this bike looks a size or two larger than mine. Interesting though, because I've never seen another one like it.
