Two videos are the top (left) and lower sections (right) of the descent from the summit just above the toll booth. On the left video, there's a switchback which always made me lean real hard--it seemed to never end, and as I rounded the downhill corner, I'd pick up speed. The second video starts at the toll booth (same as the top photo) and snakes down towards Fussa. This route was 70 miles if you did the entire loop, 49 if you rode to the toll booth and came back the way you came, always with breath-taking scenery. Joe
Zamora took the top photos of me. When we rode together we wore our Volvo team jerseys.
These are pictures J.T. (Miimii and I called him "Buffalo")snapped on my 23rd birthday for my
mother, about two seconds before my actual time of birth. I phoned J.T. and asked if he wouldn't mind going on a nice long
ride with me and taking a few pictures so my mother would see some
pictures of me riding on my birthday. You can see my winter
clothing rolled up and tucked into my jersey(it was a bit nippy).
