DEATHRIDE: July 12, 2008
Rick and I spent the week in the Sierras for altitude acclimation and preparation for the infamous Tour of the Ca. Alps.
Rick successfully completed 5 passes; I did 4.5 passes. I did make the cut-off time! Please enjoy the slideshow. I was blessed with so many TNT, non-TNT friends as well as strangers while on the bike. Ride time was 14 hrs. Highlights: cycling in various weather patterns: night time, cool weather, hot/sunny, rain, thunder/lightening and hail on the descent of front side of Ebbits and enroute to Carson Pass. Despite the weather, made the cut off times.
Thank you to all my supporters for this adventure in my cycling storybook.
My new nickname from my TNT peers and coaches: Steadfast Susie
