about 330 into my long ride today, i decided to head up the mountain for the rest of my ride.
everything was going wonderfully (except i was a little chilly and getting colder the higher i went) until i got a flat at about 5000ft (8 miles in).
normally, not a big deal. however, i brought the 650 tube instead of a 700. not good....
strangely enough, the first truck i tried to flag down, stopped and just happened to live a block away from me.
very lucky.... was kinda' scary. might not try to climb it again alone.
below are pics from the first 8 miles.
