|Waiting for me at the top of the first climb.|
|Third to last climb of the day.|
|Much walking was done.|
After mashing 20 to 30 RPM for the previous 6.5 hrs, I finished up the ride at Jonathan Davis' house, instead of riding the last two or three miles (uphill) back to the shop. It was quite a fantastic ride. The Centennial Cone singletrack was pretty cool. It will definitely be worth going back there once it opens again on June 15, 2014.
The best part of the ride was all the great people I met. It's good to meet people who love doing long, hard rides. I'm really looking forward to riding with them soon. This will be a good way for me to get some fitness over the winter. I'm glad I found a group to ride with, but next time I'll bring a few gears.
