This is what an MTB is made for, climbingin the dirt. Ended up at a max of 4000 ft. Lots of steep sections, some 22%, maybe more. Same course as a couple weeks ago but higher and further into the mountain.
Ride partner riding up what is known as "The Pain Divide"..that's not the top, another false summit!
I was feeling it today but still managed a thumbs up!
What's an MTB ride without a nail in the tire. Parnter's brand new tubless tire!

Ride partner, our cars are down there somewhere!
Now I know Gina had her feet up on yesterday's tandem ride cause I was BUSHED today!
Came from down that trail. Center towards the right, you can see the big white golfball shaped radar dome I posted last time. It was a tough climb today!
