Pedaling Yentas Make It To The Top
What a motley bunch of pedalists -- Kevin the Review-Journal photo chief; along with two doctors, Scott and Ben, and, of course, Anthony, doctor of pizza-ology. Together, we're the pedaling yentas, a bunch of middle-age guys cycling at 8,000 feet in the Spring Mountains near Mount Charleston.
You're looking at a celebratory photo depicting the end of the climb, a mostly uphill 14 miles before we reversed field and headed back to the Spring Mountains Visitors Center on Kyle Canyon Road (about 6,600 feet elevation.)
We start biking up Deer Creek Road, which connects Kyle Canyon Road with Lee Canyon Road and eventually the Las Vegas ski center. Below is Anthony after biking about five miles up the mountain.
There's Kevin cycling on Deer Creek.
The docs -- Ben and Scott -- set the pace.
What amazing scenery.
Now, it's time for the descent and ride back to the visitors center.
