Remus and I rode up to over a 7,500 foot elevation on Angeles Crest Highway today. Over 250 sweeping curves on a 150 mile ride. Fun Fun Fun !!!!
I froze my nuts off on the way down as it was like 40 degrees out with snow on both sides of the windy road and I had my summer gloves on, ugh !! We also encountered intermittent rock slides with everything from small gravel to watermelon sized boulders in the road. So we didn't push it on the way down. We completed the full 66 mile route from the 210 freeway and rode the 138 highway through the desert home with a beautiful orange sunset in the sky.

Cold is not something I have to bother about where I am now, but it has been something to deal with in other places, and will be again. Sometimes wet with it, which is a real challenge. Yes, it is the knees and the hands that cop it first, and the most.Next weekend osborne to the fire station? and then to the 14? no snow, i promise. The cold got my hands too, way less then Alan and my knees and we encounter a frozen lake by Mountain High on the way to 138. I just would love to go there in summer and tear the bends
