Mt. Washington at dawn
Just a heads up that the second of this year's sunrise rides at Mt. Washington is on Sunday, July 24. If the weather is good, what a great experience. The gates open at 4 a.m., leaving plenty of time to scoot up the mountain in time for sunup. Sue and I went a couple of years ago on the August date. When we left home it was 60-ish (at 2:30 a.m). At the top of the mountain it was 39 F. with a 30 mph wind. Cold as hell. So electrics aren't the worse idea in the world. But what a view! One tip: if you go, give the cars in front of you lots of space. They have a tendency of stopping here and there to look, and if you're on a curve (especially with two up) there's no place to put a foot down. That said, it's a memorable experience.
