This year was cold and clear. There
was hardly a breeze so the ride was fun.
Looks like a nice day, until you remember that we're going way over there (the little bump on top of the far away mountian)!
At least there are a few tracks to ride in. As long as you can single track without loosing your front wheel.
Rob and Dan seem to be smiling now, let's see how they look in a few miles.
A quick stop to take in the view.
Okay, we made it this far... let's keep going.
1 mile in and Fetch is eating already.
Still plugging away!
2 hours later, it's the top of the road. Don't forget about the 26 flights of stairs (if you can call them that) carved out of rock.
Time for the cold weather gear!
Having fun Ken? Looks like it was a breeze for him!
Rob Hughes' first offical ride with his brother Dan a multi-year veteran.
We're here! Don't ask why we brought the bikes up... we just do it!
Tim's taking in the scenery.
Rob arrives with a look of joyful pride. That was easier then he thought it was going to be!
The crew looking out over Lake Placid.
Lake Placid in the distance.
A well deserved rest.
Whiteface Ski Resort from the peak.
Take a good look Rob, it's not normally this clear!
Dan the Explorer reached the summit and stakes his claim.
Get your hat on Chris, it's cold up there!
Wow, is it so cold you beard is frosted??? Nope, it's just gray hair...
How was it Ken? In for next year again?
Hey Tim, did you press the right button? Yep, I guess so.
Get over here Tim it's about to go... forget it. You were in the last one.
On the way back down looking up at where we were.
Another look at the stairway to the peak.
