Last Christmas I gave La Lissa von Stoker a present of as many lattes as she wanted, whenever it was feasible.
So far its turned out to be a great, mutually enjoyable gift. Wether iced or hot, with foam or without, I pull the shots short for no bitterness and add less milk than the average coffee joint would, leading to a full-flavor latte.
And so the Great Latte Accord of Christmas 2010 has been profitable, and very often enjoyed following an outing of Team Tandem-Trailer Continental.
Today it was the City Creek Canyon Climb then down to the Farmer's Market. Our legs were strong, we made great time grinding through 10% grades at some points.
This strength was not so for the day prior, when Handlebar Willie made a solo outing to Killyon Canyon. The legs did not clean every hill, but it hardly matters with views like these:
I rode/hiked this ridgeline of single track to the knife ridge in the distance to the left by the small clouds, then turned around to descend into the canyon, then home.
