Mountain Ride Reports

Since I’ve found myself focusing on cycling adventures in the mountains instead of climbing adventures (mostly, anyway), I thought I’d start documenting the key or otherwise memorable rides I’ve done.  I’m not convinced such reports will be useful for anyone, but they will be fun for me to write and later read.  Below is a list of links (and placeholder / reminders) to ride reports listed in trip chronological order.
