|After climbing for over 50 minutes we got a short respite then had to climb another mile and a half. We stopped for a breather and photo at the top.|
|Californians are really nice people. They even gave us a leadout on our way to the mountains.|
|Our tour guide was Jack Hartman. Jack is a friend of Greg LeMond and others. He is a heck of a rider and a really great guy to talk to.|
|After another 2 mile downhill run we stopped for water and Gatorade. The water tasted better. There's nothing like mountain water. We left the store and immediately the road went up . . . for another 5 miles. Here we are at the top of Yuba Pass.|
|Neil felt really bad that day and stayed home. This is how we found him when we got back. Looks like he had a pretty good day. He actually assumed this position most evenings regardless of injuries.|
|That night I tried my hand at long exposure. I need practice. This is the best shot I got of the moon rising behind a thin veil of clouds.|
