september highwood pass ride

easily the hardest bike ride I’ve ever done. Not the longest, but over 1000m of climbing, with constant headwinds. Awesome. So much fun. And ouch. We started 25km further out1 than our usual Highwood Pass route2, so the ride was about 50km longer than usual. I wound up snapping a spoke and getting a flat less than 3km from the cars. And Anthony got 2 flats within 1km of each other, near the summit. Still, what a fun ride.

Compare with the ride we did less than 3 months ago
