First taste of vomit

The avalanche rose looks like this:


And we’re all a bit spooked after Wednesday’s fatality. So instead of touring today, I found myself doing this:

Rick was up to his usual tricks, setting a blistering pace to the top (he kindly let me pull to the front as Rachel approached us driving down the hill, though, and yes, she bought it). As a result, I had the first taste of vomit in my mouth for the year.

Aaron reminded me that it would be the first of many.


  1. 1st reaction: I would have liked to ride with you guys.

    2nd thought: I would have tested vomit, then bile, and finally blood.

  2. I now know where those extra 5 lbs are sitting. Good ride.
