Afternoon ride from the north side of the ridge back to town. Karl and Gabe dropped me off. I didn't go as far as I did with Rutter last year. And I was sad that I didn't think of him as much as I wanted to during the ride.
The north side of the slope seemed really steep, and I worked hard to climb it. It felt interesting going immediately into the downhill after climbing so hard. When I ride out and back, I always chill and recover at the top for a while.
