I was chauffeured to Danville where my companion and I proceeded to bike 10 miles to the staging area for this week's LKHC event -- Morgan Territory Road. As you can see, the weather was just spiffy, doing wonders for my hair... The ride to the start was peaceful and pretty, full of cows on the hills and my favorite kind of animal -- male cyclists.
I became cold waiting for the event to begin. I met this man (no you say!) who let me stay inside his warm van. Break out the mimosas!
We did the climb in small groups. This shot was taken after the ride. During the climb, the visibility was obscured by the dense cloud cover until we reached the finish line. You couldn't see anything other than what was in front of you.
It was a fast start. The plan was to beat Miss A. I managed to get ahead of her for awhile on the 5 mile climb but she caught up to me after one steep pitch. The revised plan was to cross the finish line with her. Didn't happen. She beat me by 29 seconds. I had a fun time in beautiful territory. Must return sometime.
