yeah
definitely...

P.S. actually i was wrong about the conversion
i was above 1500 meters asl... I.E. 4,900 feet and not 3000...

at 3000 feet asl... if the weather is good... and there are decent roads... i rode all year round... far above the weather changes more faster... so you could find yourself in winter in unpleasant situations...

ask me how i know?

Those very changing conditions are what the challenges are that makes those very rides so Memorial. Of course surviving those are a prerequisite, LOL! In the past I’ve ridden to work on dry winter roads but had to deal with 3 inches of snow to return home. A very slow ride for sure.
