Couple 'o' days in the hood. Finally - the high country is open and riding like BUTTER (despite the carniverous skeetos and flies). Saw three whole people on the ride today - and even showed some strangers a HIDDEN TRAIL. Could it be? Am I getting sort or wise? Dunno. Hit two of my favorite climbs in different counties today - both north of 10,000 feet. Felt really good. I may even be gaining some fitness. And yes, Bob, it is all uphill...until the downhill.
