Streak Ride # 31 is now in the books. I thought that it was going to be easy, since I did pretty well last month, and I have been doing quite a bit of riding. I was sure wrong. It started out well, going really fast to the start of the big climb, but then I lost my strength. Maybe I went out a little bit too fast. Anyway, I suffered going up the mountain, so much so, that I had to stop at 10,000 feet and rest for five minutes. I was wasted. Eventually I made it to the top, and stuck around only long enough to inhale a power bar, and take off for the bottom. I couldn't wait to get down, and I even passed two cars. They passed me back, at the uphill by the ski area, but it was worth it. I stopped at the gas station for a gatorade, and then headed for home. Another stop at the ranger station to water up for the climb back up to Raven Rd., and I was done. I hope I do better next month.

It was a mostly sunny hot day, with a few threatening clouds that never did rain. Temps varied from the 60s to the 90s.
