This is a picture from the top of the Kings Canyon road climb. As you can see, the southern exposures have melted, but anything that does not get direct sun still has quite a bit of snow on it.

New Contributor to Cycling Carson City
Scott, aka XD, the man that has me continuously reaching for my dictionary, has joined on as a contributor to Cycling Carson City. The first time I met Scott, he was bleeding profusely from one of Jeff P’s well constructed trails. I see him every once in a while when we’re out riding, but mostly I just know him from his comments here. Scott does a bit of racing, and is even going down to the Sea Otter Classic. Racing coverage may be something Scott contributes too. We’ll see what he comes up with.
Tuesday’s Road Ride
Stay tuned for Jeff P’s update on this Weekend’s Iron Mountain Ride. He should have all the details tomorrow.
