And Then There Were Five
Miss P and I thought it would just be the two of us climbing Sierra Road but then, poof, five male cyclists appeared suddenly, eager to join her club ride. I loved the French guy's accent. And Dwight was a sweetie to wait for me when I didn't make it through the light at Piedmont. Another rider was someone I met on the Eastern Sierras trip.
Before we knew it, we were at the summit. Sierra Road didn't seem as hard as it sometimes does. I got up in 55 minutes which is the same time I had back in 2007 for a LKHC event. Not bad, eh. We didn't stick around for long at the top because the wind was almost icy. Doing the backside was chilly, too. I managed a speed of 30.5 mph somewhere, probably because I was cold and wanted to get down to the bottom as quickly as possible. Notice that the hills are turning green! That was a nice change.
