Just Call Me Cyclist to the Flies

Atop Fremont Peak, a climb I really enjoy.  Photos from past trips can be seen here and here.  Today, Miss P and Dr. G. and I chose to climb it before the heat settled in, thus, we didn't stay with club members who chose to do a 60 mile loop.

A sweaty mess!  I felt strong today and got up in 1 hr 30 min.  I wasn't racing (am I ever?), but, certainly, the climb was not as daunting as it has been on previous rides.  The flies enjoyed their lunch (me).  Boy, they were out in force.

 After Fremont Peak, we climbed San Juan Grade (Salinas Road).  The road surface is poor and there was a lot of traffic as well.  But, no flies.

Here I am at the summit of San Juan Grade, free of flies.  Good ride with good friends.
