So I finally made it out with the Arizona chapter last night, and it was wicked awesome. I don't think I've been up anything as steep as Camelback mountain before, I did have to pedal a little, but I made it up. Great views up there after dark.
Many thanks to:
Mike, for having a slow climber and crawling uphill with me.
Ryan, for having a kickass spot to meet up, and for treating me to a new stock'ish pipe for my Batavus. (It won't work, I'll get that back to you next week.)
And Elric, no I don't know how to spell it, for being generally cool and making me feel inferior with his sweet Magnum.
