I rarely ride in the afternoon and Lookout experiences a quick drop in temperature if you ride after 3 PM in the short days of winter. The road will still be a bit icy tomorrow morning and descending takes a bit of caution on the switchbacks just above Windy Saddle. Pick your line carefully riding both up and down. I cleared some rocks off the road in the Clear Creek Canyon stretch of the ride.
Here is a picture of Ray Bolton, showing how he would ride under just about any conditions on the mountain.
