Jul 30, 2009
A light day in comparison to yeaserday, the elevation was a bit dramatic as were the views. When we started this morning it was 37 degrees but it didn't take too long to warm up with the climb up Rose mountain and at the summit it was 8,990 feet and still in the 30's. At the SAG stop there was still snow left from the winter. Parts of the ride we were looking down on the snow covered peaks. The ride was all around Lake Tahoe and it is spectacular. To get to Sparks Nevada we had an 16 plus mile down grade I was going 40 mph at one time way too fast! We still have some more climbing tomorrow but I am getting better at it but they are so damn long! Going to have dinner and then to bed, this is the fifth day in a row and I am beat.
