Wakey, wakey, eggs and bikey.
Near perfect conditions.
For whatever reason this loop is always spirited. You folks know what I'm talking about. Certain roads inspire speed.
Breakfast on the bike. One ZBAR, two CLIF Shots.
Settling in with, this backdrop.
The run to Round Mtn. is always fast. Not sure why, the bunch is going to blow once the road tilts. Kudos to Art for nabbing the KOM.
I like this route because you are never far from Fayetteville but you feel like your in the sticks.
Two climbs to go. Still intact.
