Wow, Gran Fondo Goldendale is one spectacular ride. And I’m not just saying that because I want to sell more registrations, I’m saying that as a dude who rides bikes a lot and is blown away by how rad it is. But lets back up a bit, you may remember the story from last year where I participated in GFG. It was awesome and I had hoped I could pull it off again this year. As the event drew near I could see the pieces of the puzzle falling into place. I have such rad family of volunteers! Everything came together nicely and by 9:00 am Sunday morning all of the work that goes into these feels soooo worth it. Especially when your on a bike! Again, Brooklynn successfully led us out of town (you never know with her) and we were on our way. The sun was out and GFG was as spectacular as ever. Snowy mountain peaks (5? I lost count) some road, some gravel, little climbs, big climbs, twisty rippin fast down hills, still buzzin from it all. I will spare you my long winded story as it would sound very much like last year: ride hard trying to hang with guys that are too fast for me, realize that part way through, and spend the rest of the ride paying dearly for it. But somehow still getting across the finish line with a reasonable time. Awesome day!!! Again, gotta give it up for my crew, so awesome to just go ride my bike and know that GFG is in good hands!
