This was one of those weekends that reminds me why I pour all of my time and energy into my bicycle addiction.
A little over 200 miles, mostly on gravel or MTB trails, with about 15,000' of climbing.
Feeling very grateful for all the support in my life and for having friends that think ridiculous adventures like this one are good ideas.
Special shout-out to @mcclave17 for fixing my knee issues with only ONE PT visit. Incredible how fast he got me back up and running. If you need a bike fit (they take insurance!) he's your guy.
Also, a little not-dinner-conversation, but I was totally amazed to have worn the same @pearlizumiofficial P.R.O. chamois for every taint-hammering mile and never had a bit of discomfort, even without using chamois cream. That was the only part of me that didn't hurt by the end... Highly recommend.
