25 mi w/Gerry and Edge.
An adventure in Paradise.
Cool, 75, scattered clouds.
Got to the maintenance shed and saw John.
He has a new bike, nice!
Talked a while, then headed back.
Could see that it was raining back toward Baldy.
Saw a great rainbow, and then met Edge riding out from the village.
He turned around and rode back with us.
As we got closer back to the village the road was wet.
It had rained hard while we were out.
Then came the thunder and lightening.
It was getting ready to rain more.
Picked up our speed and raced and beat the impending storm.
Got back and inside before it started pouring.

37 mi MWF+
Went out at 4:00p and rode GRR to the maint shack on GMR.
Rode back to the fork and then rode the YoYo.
The YoYo is from mile marker 0 on GRR, down to mm 0 on GMR (Eastfork Rd),
and then back to mm 0 on GRR.
This adds 10 more miles, and 1500 more vertical feet to the ride.
This makes for a 4000' climb in 37 miles.
It was a beautiful afternoon in Paradise.
There were some light sprinkles, and mid 80's temperatures.
Saw deer, and the usual tarantulas on the road.
Ran into Edge and Rick at Peacock saddle, this is the bottom of the Reward climb.
Edge rode back to Baldy Village with me, Rick was on a motorcycle.
A great afternoon.
