Hit the 79 mile strava challenge today
went for a little jaunt with ahultin, thought we'd see the sights in Orange and LA County.
Sorry none of the rest of you could make it, we did have a good day on the bikes, and despite the threat of rain yesterday, it was absolutely beautiful out today.
If you look carefullly at our route, you'll see that we started out, went about 5 miles and turned around. That would be me forgetting my water bottles. Oops. You'll also see the world's longest tire change right near the end... my inner tube appears to weld itself to the tire, so I couldn't get the flipping tire off.
We kept an eye out for Beach Grad because we rode right by her hood, and Beanz was nowhere to be found - i thought for sure he'd be holding court at the head of SART but no dice. Or we were too late, one or the other.
The temperature was mostly between 60 and 70 for the entire ride, which was fantastic. We only really had nasty head wind for about 5 miles on SGRT, the part between Coyote creek and Seal Beach. I think we went from averaging about 19 down to 13, it was like a kick in the teeth.
