Today's objective: PRs in BOTH Split 2 and Split 5. This will give me first place for all 6 Splits in the BC Diablo Climbers club.
Success, of course. Split 2 on Junction 1, and Split 5 on Junction 2.
Now I just need to get the Gate to Junction PR faster than Colin's and I'll have the whole deck.
Tarantella Tally: one crawler below The Bump... my first one of the season!
Wildlife Encounter: Lots of deer - I stopped to watch some younger ones frollicking at Coyote Flats - they were clearly just enjoying life and playing with each other. Also lots of turkeys.
So just me on Junction 1, and then on Junction 2 Donna and Shawn joined me. Shawn and I pulled ahead of Donna pretty quickly, and I told Shawn of my goal to PR on Split 5 and then I took off.
There were two loose dogs near the Lower Ranch - probably belonged to the ranchers.

When your tires on your fair-weather bike are worn out just as you are thinking about transitioning to your foul-weather bike, you know the season has gone well and things will just keep falling into place.
