Gatlinburg Day 1

Do you know how much I love riding in the true mountains? We got in last night at 11:45PM, and I knew that my 700x23c racing tires would be no match for potentially slick icy roads up here so I spent another 30 minutes changing both tires and putting on some good 700x25c all-weather tires (gotta love the Strada-Ks) so that by the time I made it to bed it was 12:30AM. Nevertheless, I set my alarm for 5:30AM so I’d have a chance to do some riding before my computer conference began. Now during a quick break after lunch I just uploaded my ride and see that I ended up with the KOM on the motor trail descent … heartrate still racing a bit from ducking, diving, and sliding around corners in the half-light of dawn shaded by Mt Leconte. Here are some pics I took along the way:

Lots of climbing via double oak rollercoaster repeats. Caution bham cyclists ... I flatted halfway down Hugh Daniel descent today - don't know if there is something in the road so be careful! This pic doesn't have anything to do with that other than Hugh Daniel is the gap in the middle ridge line. 10000 ft of repeats on double oak. Started my repeats with 3000 ft of climbing already in the ride. Love that there is a railroad tie at the steepest part of the climb on the tower side. Finally, the tracks may be hard to see, but there are a bunch!
