Dude Camp, Day Two

Lesson of the day: If you are climbing up one side of a mountain pass and that pass is like a 300% grade, you do not want to be in your big ring while you're climbing. It's like trying to carry a moose up the stairs of the Sears Tower. Not that I would know this from direct experience, the big ring thing, not the moose thing, I'm just saying it will really hurt and you will wonder why you are going so slow and the people around will give you weird looks but probably not say anything until one of the people around you says, "Um, did you want to be in your big ring?" And then you will have to come up with some story like, "Um, yes, I did want to be in my big ring, what is this, wussy camp? NO! It's dude camp where we're riding bikes! Be a dude, dude!"

Cast of Characters:

Adam--President, person you want to talk to when you are the only girl at dude camp and you have to go to the bathroom and there's nothing but desert for miles.

Steve--Best wheel in the world.


Obligatory dude picture.

See that dip in the background? It's a serious climb. That's where we rode. And by "we" I mean "they." Her Highness and I hitched a ride up this thing because it's a mountain. A MOUNTAIN. Her Highness and I see no reason to climb a mountain as there is no other time we will be climbing mountains except during dude camp. Besides, the car had the food.

But guess what? An uphill backwards is a downhill and what a thrill ride the downhill was. Fuck yeah.
