    Had to defrost my toes after the ride, but I'm glad you all came out to ride today. I think it was 40 degrees when we finished. Luckily, minimal wind. The view at the top is always spectacular. See you next week.

    Thinking of joining if I can get off work early. Where do you park outside and how long does it take to get to the meeting point from outside the park?
