Damn cold

This morning when I left the cabin it was 28 degrees. That would have been ok but I was planning on climbing upto over 5000'. The climb to newfound gap was over 14 miles, all up.

I've never been on a ride where I was damn cold in the sun on a climb. On the shaded slopes it was ridiculous. The descent was brutal. I had to stop at the visitors center to get to a point where I could feel my feet and hands.

But I gotta was a great ride. Epic for sure. Lots of snow and icy roads and morbidly obese people having snowball fights.
