With Spring in the air, and upcoming rides at Summerland, I came across this pic that I took of Peter Brown in 2011 -¬† It was early April, but still quite a lot of snow up high. - In spite of some health issues, Pete tried his best to make it up over the top of the Mountain¬† with me - and looking back at this now, I realize just what a great effort he put in on most of the days we were out plotting the Outlaw loop. - Pete knew that he couldn’t ride like he did in earlier years,¬† ( Yes I picked him up quite a lot) - but still he was always there for me - he never let me down - ever.

And that is why we have the small plaque on the tree stump on the section that we called “Devil’s Staircase” -

Maybe I will show it to some people on the Easter long weekend.
