Paul asked, “So what are you doing for exercise” after a nice Thai Salmon Wrap dinner late Monday afternoon.
“Anything”, I responded.
And so we met up last night and while laying around in the grass decided upon University Beacon. It took us 3 hours and it was a spirit healing experience. As I rode along I felt more and more at home in the saddle. More and more like a human again. More and more at the right place, the right time, the right friend.
Side note: I just read one of my best post called “Bleeding For Us”.
We met up with Ed and Laurie out for a recovery spin. “Where are you going?”
“We just did the Deer Creek Sneak. Just something easy. I feel pretty exhausted”, Ed responded. “What about you guys?”
On top we said hello to Marcy and braced against the high winds to descend the ridge. It was like landing a plane at night. Truly spectacular. If you have ever descended this ridge then you will know about the headwall. Yep, we both made it down.
I was real impressed with Paul. Not surprised, no. He once bombed down Whiteface Mountain in the Adirondacks when the snow was still on the mountain. Since then I am not surprised. We will have to post the video one day.
I wonder what is in store for today?
