    Crazy ass wind was blowing out of the central valley today. Rode Brushy Peak and I could have sworn I was seeing the grass turning color to brown as I rode





    The windmills were screaming, literally you could hear the bearing noise.








    A couple of times on the climb the gusts were so strong that I came to a dead stop and had to get off going up this open section



    The top rocky section was nice



    looking down at Livermore National Laboratory



    Let it rip from here, added 5psi to my rear shock and a click of preload to the front before leaving home and it was just about perfect fron flicking through the rocks



    looking back
