Last week you might remember Harvey, the Santa Cruz bicyclist who traveled to Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area's loop four times a year. He biked a massive mountain bike and was climbing about 3 mph up a steep hill when I saw him last Sunday.
I thought Harvey topped the colorful character category at the Red Rock loop.
Until this morning.
Around 6:50 a.m., I met a woman who puts new meaning behind colorful character. She rode a heavy clunker of a bike (a Next) and several other distinguishing characteristics:
-- Hey boyfriend refused to allow her to bike in the small granny gear to grind up the steep hills.
-- She wore a bikini bottom and flip flops.
-- Missing front tooth.
-- She says she doesn't mind being in the newspaper because she's already "on the internet."

I hit the Red Rock Scenic Loop outside Las Vegas by 6:30 am because that's what you do when the temps are supposed to hit the 115 mark today. Lots of other cyclists on the Red Rock circuit.
