Just me today. Got a late start because, why not? Not too cold, but there were gusty winds around some of the switchbacks that were almost scary.
On the knee front, it seems like the smartest plan is to push hard on Junction rides and not worry about not going any higher. That also gives me an EXCUSE to push hard on Junction rides. The knee hurts the first few times I test it out, but then it gets better, although still unstable. I'm no where near doing a sprint.
