Flagpole Knob

(at right, Beneline descends from Flagpole Knob on some of VA's best singletrack.)

Superbowl Sunday ride highlights:

1--Riding with Nick who was visiting from England.
2--Being in a slugfest with Sally and Carol to reach the top of the mountain. Sally crowned queen of mountain.
3--Heading down a black diamond descent with hands that couldn't feel brakes.
4--Alan's battery operated shoe heaters and Sally's everlasting hand warmers and Carol's ancient handwarming methods.
5--Photo op with Sue Haywood, professional mountain biker.
6--Finally meeting Mike, the guy who collided with a black bear last summer.
7--The sun, the wind, the trees and no ice!

(below l-r, Paul, Nick, Liz, Carol and Sally stay low at Flagpole Knob, highest point in Rockingham County, VA.)

I forgot to say Kev that it was snowing during the hour long climb up the mountain. Surreal--very sunny with very high winds (25 mph)and snow blowing without ever seeming to reach the ground.
