This past Sunday I rode up it again. You know, just trying to log more miles and get some climbing in. I planned to meet a couple riders, Aaron and Diego. The meet up didn’t time out so I started climbing alone. I knew they’d catch me at some point. Surprisingly I made it all the way to Clear Creek solo. I was thinking about bailing there but they pulled in shortly after me. So we made the decision keep going and finish the ride. Aaron and I chatted the whole way up. At a comfortable convo pace. The miles disappeared and before we knew it we were at the summit.
I managed to beat some times again, which was cool, but riding and chatting with a new friend made the day. Cyclists are good people. Glad to be a part of it.
