    Looks like the Borrego to the Sea loop then the Tour of Borrego hooked together!

    There is that 10% dip I was talking about. Seems to be about 70 miles into the ride. Better get to climbing Axel!

    Well that section can be avoided since it is an out and back section but then you would miss the great downhill rush!

    Yeah, and the guy at the top of the climb waiting to greet you with an "ok, now turnaround and do it again!"
