Last ride of September. I am ready for winter already.
Oh boy, hot and smoky today. I saw a few people coming down when I was just started up and a couple people at Junction and that was it. I knew it was going to be hot and smoky and I went anyway... I was not overwhelmed, but it was bad.
At Junction I met a guy from San Diego who took a week off from work to ride from San Diego to Mount Diablo and back... 200 miles per day! He was staying in hotels at night and he had a giant saddle bag with his gear in it... I assumed pajamas and electronics chargers.
Check out my new inversion table - really gets the kinks out of my spine. I got it for $20 at a garage sale last week.
