Mine all Mine
rode the mine country challenge put on by gaba
my original thought was to do the metric century since I had never done a century with other folks and I had to strip down the commuter for it.
i knew a friend of mine was a likely participant so I contacted him and
he advised tha i would be an
to not do the century
that was only 93 miles
and 7k feet of climbing.
damn that was fun.
except for globe.
that was freaky.
be careful out there.
it was a great ride. the climb from
superior to globe had me jelly from climbing
i was happy to see something worth stopping for
and even caught a rider in the shot
as the ride progressed i found my stride
and caught up with some of the folks that left as soon
as they registered.
funny sky when i was driving up
scenic superior. kind of lik a small bisbee before the free spirits. and more rednecks.
snow on the climb to globe
if it can't be grown it must be mined.
course enviro. friendly mining is ideal.
not sure i'd be willing to live so close to so many open mines.
the scenery after globe was spectacular and the roads got better.
the tailwind however turned into a headwind that saw me out of the saddle for miles on a climb.
the downhills were stupid fun.
