Streak Ride #47 is now complete. I rode to the top of the crest a month ago, but I'm just now getting around to writing it down (it's already December). I've been in a major bicycle funk for the past few weeks, but I'm hoping that I am going to be snapping out of it, real soon.

Back on the first of November when I did this ride, the weather was fantastic. It was a beautiful sunny day, and temps were unseasonably warm. It started out in the 40s, and warmed all the way up into the 60s as the day went on. It was even in the mid-40s at 10,678 feet. It was so warm that I didn't need to use my full-fingered gloves. Very nice!

This climb was a lot easier than my last ride up to the crest. I really struggled on that last try, but this one showed a lot of improvement. I really need to keep riding, but I just haven't been feeling like it lately.
