The route for the day: Estatoe->North Slope->276->477->Bennett->Coontree->276->475->Long Branch->Cat Gap. I broke off from the group at this point and took 475->276 back to the Jeep. They had grand plans that started with 475b from there. Right now I think they are still out.

This past weekend was Double Dare and I think I may finally be awake enough to think about the ride I got in while the race was going on.... Saturday afternoon was beautiful with temps in the high 70's and zero humidity. The Fall foliage was at near peak also. Mike B., Brian N. and I were on the bikes at about 4pm and our route for the day: 475->471->WH->471D->Butter->Cat->Davidson. The warm-up was atrociously hard, the downhills were smooth as, ummm, butter, and Mike and I kept Brian in sight on the downhills but just barely. We got back just as the first losers were arriving at DD so, that worked out perfect. I didn't bring a camera, gps, or anything like that along so no true documentation this time. I do, however, have Double Dare photos. That'll do, right?
