It was the best of times, it was the… ah, the heck with it, it was a fun bike ride, with a large group of cyclists, way too many to do a roll call for. You can see them in the photo above. It was also my first ride using an Albuterol inhaler, and might have produced my fastest time up Kings this year was it not for a stop about 3/4 of the way up to make sure Kevin was OK… he was standing by the side of the road, in post-seizure mode, about to get back on his bike. A couple of guys were with him, so I rode on, getting something like 27:45 instead of the 27:15 I might have otherwise had. Still a ways from a sub-27 time that lends some credibility to my efforts.
