The Cactus Club organized a ride to Kitt Peak so 9 of us gathered at the base of the mountain and rode the 12 miles to the top. As I recently posted several images from the same ride from two weeks ago I'll keep this accounting short. I was ready to shove off at the appointed start time of 9:00am. Looking around, there were others not ready and with my desire to ride in my private box of pain, I got going. Above, some of the group pass the point where the road finally bends flat.
Aw, the views!
The area being remote and where we parked our cars having a reputation for car break-ins, I had taken everything of value from my car, stuck it in a bag and stored it in a SAG vehicle. The group was going to take a tour of the peak so I took my bag, looped it around my neck and began the descent.
I took 20 minutes off my time of 2 weeks ago, finishing the entire ascent of 12 miles in 90 minutes. Still 9 minutes off my best time and I think I can get that so probably will try the ride again, soon.
