Beautiful day today early start so the weather was really nice. Tough ride after yesterdays hike Legs are dead.
Very foggy route is in good condition
The rain actually made it better
Too soon the mud got me
Started around 3:00 pm. Turned my lights on before 4 corners. Very cold up there: 40F. Had a flat on the rear but I did not fix it. I kept on putting air in it till the end, maybe 6 times. I haven't descended Motorway in several years. In the night the trail seems longer.
