weather was awesome
It's been over 10 years since I returned to this trail. It has not changed that much, still lots of exposure. I don't much like exposure and was in "pucker mode" for most of the ride. The fast, fun, flowy sections were a blast to be sure, but then it's back to pucker mode. At least for me, it is. Especially the last 2 lower sections. Did not really have any close calls, but was overly conscious of the possibilities. But I survived and picked up some new skills (if not pedaling or back of the saddle - always keep your inside pedal up, and usually it is better to roll through than start dabbing). What a beautiful day up there too, no bugs, cool/warm/cool brezes prevailed. Good times with good friends. Great Ride!
TB. Second ride of the camping weekend. Got to show some friends/wife the whole shuttle today. New dirt sections for some. Again, had the whole trail to ourselves. Saw 3 riders on the way up Middle Control Road, but that was it. Trail was in really nice condition. Always forget about how rocky the lower 6 miles of the ride are. Bugs were not bad at all. Breeze blew all day.....sometimes warm, sometimes cool. Been a few years since I had done this...still think I prefer to climb up. Good ride for sure.
Manual posting because I forgot to press the start button on my Garmin. Very hot up there. Good ride!
