Quimby Road At Last
The Boyfriend and I have never climbed Quimby Road to Mt. Hamilton. I opted out the year Low Key Hill Climb Series did it. That was some time ago. It's not as bad as I imagined. If you can climb Sierra Road, you can climb Quimby. Well, I say that, until I reached this switchback.
The Boyfriend. He and everyone else did the entire ride. He said it was probably 40 degrees at the top of Mt. Hamilton. I would have demanded a limo to get me down. Or a horse drawn carriage. Proud of him for doing it all. And delighted that we both finally did Quimby Road. In a week or so, the pros will be doing Mt. Ham and Quimby Road for the Amgen Tour of California. I hope they have perfect weather.
One last thing, while at Chili's for a meal afterwards, we had another first, watching The Kentucky Derby. Neato peato.
