03/30/14 Been a long time since I have ridden AW. Got an early afternoon start and the weather and park were gorgeous! This was Dynamo D's guided route. I rode the RIP for training and last-minute shakedown, and did not feel I suffered as a result. Surprisingly, I completely cleaned the climb up Rock-It, and right up the center in the rocks too. Of course, a granny gear and new rear tire helped a great deal, but they could not have done it without me! Felt confident descending Lynx too! WooHoo! The RIP is ready! My first time on Mentally Sensitive, a very tough HAB climb, and for a person of my skill-set - probably, a tough HAB descent too. Good food and Beer afterward at Whole Foods rounded out a... Great Ride!
