^ “Toasty ^ high winds and rain” ^

You two may want to stop reading now:

I had a day off today so I headed west. Hit up a nice cool perfect ride temp at 73° Estes Park. Did 7 miles of combined paved and single track. Then on the way back I pulled into Bobcat Ridge and did 6 miles of single track. All in all a great day. I was passing by a spot where I took a photo of my old bike the last time I rode it on June 4th. Thought I’d try to duplicate that shot with the new bike. I missed getting the correct angle though.

I've got an odd ride report to share. Basically, there is no ride report!

I was hoping to ride at least once while I was up in the desert but I could not get up early enough the first morning (hungover). So I planned to ride the next morning. And then a fire started a ways away yesterday and the smoke column was blowing directly over our area and we were smoked out pretty badly through the night last night. I held hope that it would clear out by morning but no such luck. So, I collected my goods and headed for home (hungover, again).

It was SCORCHING HOT up in there this visit but thankfully the humidity was very low so it was not as bad as it could have been.

How hot, you are wondering? How about 112F in the shade yesterday!!!

I was wondering if that fire was going to affect your trip.

I've been in smokier situations before, like when wild fires were burning less than a mile away but the smoke we were experiencing yesterday from a fire that was a long ways away had more of an effect than I thought it would....I was blowing out black buggers this morning! :o

Same old thing and I hope I'm not boring you, but I rolled through Cherry Canyon again this morning. We've been in a dense fog pattern until late morning daily now for a short spell and I am loving it. Cool weather with no sun beating down on me means I can put the hammer down on the cranks. So weird how I am "allergic to direct sunlight"??? It instantaneously drains me.

Anyway, I got in 16.95 miles and plenty of elevation gain. Saw a few hikers and a few riders, all of which were gals. I took a few pics but they were not worthy of sharing here so I dumped them.

For the cycling fittest years of my life, Mr. H, I rode almost exclusively at night. Part of that was schedule, part of it was that we had some really cool lights, but there was something about streaking throughout the dark on our bikes through downtown, in there too.

But it definitely felt better about and hour after sunset. This ain't the same Mr. Sun that I grew up under. He's a lot harsher.

The hardest part of that gain is a 2.5 mile fire road to start the ride. There is no warm up. I park my car, roll across the street and start immediately climbing and it's steep. I think the gain for that initial climb is nearly 1000'. :shock:

But if I get there early and it's still basically cold out with no sun on me, I can motor up it nicely. In Winter when it's in the 40s and 50s outside, I fly up that climb with flames following me. Well, maybe that is exaggerating a bit, but you know what I mean. :D

All the shots you post of Strawberry Peak trail look stellar,H. And there's an empty stone swimming pool at the start?
You prolly sweat enough on that ride in that heat to purge all of us. In fact, I AM feeling a bit better.

Thanks Ray. Strawberry Peak is a mini epic, IMO and I am blessed to have it. When you are rolling along on the backside, you are in true wilderness and it's soul cleansing. We saw bear tracks today in the meadow/potrero area. If you do the loop on a week day, you might not see another soul and that can be spooky when you're alone because it is so quiet and so wild.
