Nice steady abandoned fire road climb (9% avg. grade). Much of it has a single track feel. Come back down the same way, or if you take a sharp right after the white gate at the top of Harding, you can climb another 1,300ft. to Joplin Trail (see: Harding - Joplin in the ROUTES section).

Good ride today. 2nd gear all the way up. 1:08:30 to Mid. Had a little lunch. About mile 6, started to get chilly, then got COLD. Freezing and windy at 4 C's. 1:57:30 to gate. Glad I brought my full-fingered gloves and a warm head/ear warmer for descent. Feet frozen by mile 7 or 8. Took an hour after descent to get feeling back in my feet. Then on descent, felt something on the outside of my knee. Thought I'd strained something or poked a bush on the way down. It was a little tick. Hope I don't die. Yowzer!

Some water still, two big downed trees at mile 7ish (can walk under), then wow, a whole bunch of snow. What a surprise. Saw a few tracks (bike).

SS. Late afternoon spin up Harding. It has been a few years since I did Harding only up and down. I normally have some warmup miles/elevation by the time I get there. Today was straight from the parking lot. I spent the first 5 miles warming up the legs...they decided they were doing the ride under protest. Finally started to feel good about mile 6. Temps were a tad warm to start, then we got the breeze...such a welcome breeze. Fun run down. Good day on the bike.

Saturday ride was nice and casual. Trail in good shape now.
