Lots of wind and rain but it was all over by late afternoon and today was cold but pretty nice.
HEY! They painted the Gate green! Looks nice but didn't seem to be necessary as far as I can remember.
Also, they added a thick stripe of Bott's dots at the exit - probably to slow down bikes... I don't know why they worry about that so much. Anyway, they put them in nice parallel diagonals so it's pretty easy to ride between them.
JB and I rode to Junction. Chris Horner guy passed us and one guy coming down near the Lower Ranch was in camping shorts with no shirt on.
Lots of people came up from the South Side while we were there. JB had a house project he needed to get to so I went down SGR.
It was a lot wetter over there.
Went a couple miles down past the Kiosk and decided to turn around. Chris Horner guy was coming down from the Summit already.
