IMGP1626.jpg

This ride should only be done by sadists and/or Lance Armstrong. Hot, loose gravel, 8 miles from our house to the top of the road. ALL uphill. I needed to collect the Geo-Cache, since the location where I placed it in MAY of last year is apparently where the Billy Goats like to copulate, and therefore off-limits to geo-cachers. Yeah, I'm not kidding.
