more than just another bike blog

How can I have insomnia when I rode my bike 8 hours on Saturday! I watched the tour last night on OLN and then flipped through the channels landing on CMT for a two-hour documentary on the selection process for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. Fascinating stuff, I kid you not. I now feel my life is complete.

I know, you were expecting a Death Ride Report and all I give you is fluff. Here's the Reader's Digest version. Altitude sickness along with hyper-thyroid reactions killed my body on Saturday. I succeeded in completing three and a half passes -- almost 90 miles with about 12,000 feet of climbing in just under 8 hours. I'm not disappointed. Full report at 11:00.

Ah, but we had both.....super hot AND thunderstorms. I bailed half way up Carsen because thunder and hail had started. Lightening struck right at Turtle Rock as we all huddled in the main hall post-ride.

Gotta love it!
