We started in clouds and fog, and it eventually broke for us around mile 11. We had a beautiful ride to the top. We ate sugar donuts at the top (a Pikes Peak special) and munched on some other snacks. The newer visitor center is just amazing. Before we headed down we put on our new Pactimo lightweight rain jackets for warmth. Those jackets totally delivered. We were plenty warm on the descent. We hit fog again the last 6 miles which was so crazy. At least by that point we were almost finished.
