the air is rare...


Skinny tires + 15 % + dirt = fun climbing = treacherous descents.


Snuck out for a ride this morning before work.


Decided to explore one of the canyons out of Boulder - Sunshine Canyon Drive.


Discovered that the pavement turned to dirt with 1,000 feet of climbing to go.


Weather was a little damp, but the views were amazing.


And once my sphinctor relaxed after descending the steeper dirt sections, the paved descent made up for everything.

How'd you feel with the altitude? Awesome that you're getting after it already.

the altitude is definitely kicking my ass. i figure the only way to get over it is pretend it doesn't hurt until it doesn't.
