Today I had a great ride at Lake Tahoe with T Horse. We Started at Mt. Rose and took the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) to Kingsbury via The Flume. We then took part of the new TRT section toward Stagecoach, and then went down to the former Burger King on Lake Tahoe Boulevard via some fairly primitive trails. We call this the Burger Kingsbury ride. The weather was perfect most of the way and I had perhaps my best day ever at Tahoe. I was determined to stay on the bike and I tried, and made, a lot of new obstacles, particularly uphill ones. I also had my best day ever on the five mile climb from Spooner Summit to the Kingsbury Bench. I took nearly a half hour off on the formerly two hour climb. T Horse was riding quite well and it helped to stay close to him. Toward the end of the ride we hit a brief thunderstorm with hail, and it got fairly cold. But it cleared up by the time we finished.
