This morning I met my Summerlin friend Scott for a ride up to and around the Scenic Loop and back to Summerlin. Scott has become my alter ego and we can gab away the hours like two yentas as we climb the hills leading to the overlook summit of 4,771 feet on the Scenic Loop.
Scott and I share similar cycling style and speeds, making for an ideal conversationalist on wheels.
While we chatted grinding out the miles heading up the high desert, we biked like hell down the slopes, hitting 42 mph thanks to severe winds out of the southwest. Above is Scott biking on the Scenic Loop just after Mile 6 as we ascend The Wall after some screaming downhill runs.
