Wildlife Encounter: a raccoon looking for a handout at Junction.
So the morning ride was a little chilly, and I brought my arm warmers, but rolled them down after a couple miles of climbing. At Junction, I noticed a pair of arm warmers someone had left on the hand rail. On my second trip in the afternoon, they were still there.

That interval guy with the Mike's Bikes shorts and the Eddy Merckx was riding circles around me again ... I just had no response.

|Old guy with touring bike and panniers passed me... and that's OK.|
|I passed this guy with the tennis shoes and flat-bar hybrid though!|
