Yesterday I got out for a quick and very much needed ride. I dropped off the course marking tape at Sycamore, dropped off the kegs at Trailblazers, checked out the start/finish area, then hit Sycamore, clockwise.
I ran into Sam S. and Jon A, at the bottom, they were finishing up a photo shoot of some sort. I then tried my hardest to clean the entire climb. I didn't quite make it but close. My rocky climbs like a goat. The descent was fast and fun and I let the bike get out from under me once. Any faster or any slower of a reaction would have made for quite the wreck. I was back out at the road in just over 30 minutes, just after getting warmed up. That was just the ride that I needed before the weekend. A little mind clearing, a bit of lung expanding, and a bit of leg stretching. Perfect.
