Ever since my bike crash I've been scared of fast descents. I used to really enjoy them and go balls out and try to go as fast as I could and get down without touching the brakes at all. Now I'm white knuckles on the brakes the whole way. Making a long descent braking the whole way is physically exhausting and also very nerve racking. I no longer enjoy that feeling of being slightly out of control and taking a risk and the adrenaline rush. Anyway, now I find myself not really wanting to do the long climb up to Skyline (about 2000 feet straight up) mainly because I really don't want to have to do that fucking descent to get back down. Sigh.
