First ride of the season in my full winter gear. Didn't need my warmest gloves or booties, but it was a cold start.
Big group passed us in The Prologue.
Including this guy below, who was on a comically too small bike.
Colonel Al and I discussed safety improvements and then he rode with us up to Livermore Overlook.
Sun came out after a while and I took my gloves off and unzipped my jacket. JB turned around at Juniper because his fingers were froze.
Shawn was so bundled up I didn't recognize him. Had to go back to the file when I saw his Strava and sure enough!
This driver got the DiabloScott bloody stoopid scream.
I stopped on the way down at Junction to use the outhouse, and then I met Ted who had an Eddy Merckx similar to mine and we reminisced about how they were dream bikes when we bought them and how they still have that magic.
