And It Burns, Burns, Burns...Report

Yeehaw! Now that's a ride!!

The Ring of Fire certainly delivered on its promise, though today "Whirlwind of Fire" might have been a more apt moniker.

Dave and I spent a long day in the saddle. Only minor traffic to deal with and a few other cyclists to boot.

We really enjoyed the descent down Lefthand. I almost overcooked a turn near the Lee Hill/Lefthand junction, but I recovered in time. Then, Dave and I found ourselves embraced by an F5 tornado at the top of Old Stage. Yikes. I guess they'd call that the effects of orographic lift.

Anyhow, great time. Happy weekend, all!
