here the gate to the upper road is still closed so its car free and safe.
the yurt is still up at the parking lot, but the door is locked. on the inside there are bunk beds in a circle along the wall with a cooking/fire pit in the middle.
oh boy, during the winter i charged thru a snow blizzard up to this yurt, i opened the door and clutch was sooo happy to get inside she ran and jumped up onto the bottom row of beds and did a complete circle with such speed she was vertical on the yurt wall. luckly no one was in there at the time to see that, but she did manage to get doggy foot prints all the way around on the wall.
i threw on the furious freds on my edge carbon rims for the climb today and found out a surprizing fact. with 40 psi they are very very fast to accelerate and top speed is amazing. i was about 7 mph faster coasting down mill road and got up to that speed there faster than usual
the draw back is that this time of year there is a lot of tiny pine cone like stuff and loose rock on the pavement. hit one of these at 40+ speed and they shoot up and sideways at an increadble speed. i swear i put a couple of marble size rocks 3"-4" into trees and sent one about a mile in the air behind me.
on todays climbed i felt really good. was climbing in two gears higher than planned for the first 2/3 of the ride.
