Shot from the first mile of Saturday's ride up Millcreek Canyon (about 12 miles round trip). We took four or five breaks on the way up past the snow gate to the east entrance to the Pipeline Trail. Light rain kept things interesting on the way down. A bit startled by a loud whack on my helmet from an overhanging branch I misjudged. Glad I'd packed a sweatshirt when we hit the last fast pavement back to our vehicles. Superb late afternoon ride from approximately 5:15 to 6:45 p.m.

The only downside: Burned a CD just for this ride, but forgot my earbuds. Upside: Weather made for a cool ride up and great overcast lighting for photos. Ride seemed easier than last fall -- possible factors include L&L* support from Peak Academy, Campus Rec Natatorium, and

Ride rating: * * * * of five stars.
