HT - Nice and hot on the bottom and cooled off to nice temps half way up. First time this year since last fall for a Beeks climb. Helicopter was doing maneuvers for half the climb up. Fun descent - went pretty fast.
Took a good spill on a corner, ...too much speed, too much gravel, too much front brake, too much dumb. Ouch
felt good, ss 2.24
SS - perfect temps today. 35 to first grate, 47 to second, 1:09 to gate. Hung out with a couple deputy sheriff's at top until they got a dehydration call near the waterfall turnoff, so I beelined it down ahead of them to avoid the dust. A full fire truck and another vehicle were pulling up to the waterfall turnoff when I got there.
SS - got out late so hot from the get-go. Rode good pace first 2/3rds, but last 1/3rd was tough as heat was an issue. Had to stop to cool down. Garmin registered 97 degrees. Cool at top so enjoyed the breeze and shade and a sandwich. Descent was like hot air from the oven blowing on me. Lots of hikers out too.
