I should have gotten you out of bed to join us!
I went out with Joel (owner of Agoura Cycles) and Eugene, one of the guys who also does the shop ride on Saturdays. Our plan was to ride Rock Store and beyond.
Joel looked at the wind and opted to change out his deep dish Zipps! After a short delay we headed out but changed the route to Hidden Valley. We had heard that Mulholland was getting big winds.
We had a great tail wind going in but as soon as we made the right hand sweeping turn mid-way, we had a cross wind. We were fighting that for a while.
On the backside, we battled strong gusts on Lynn, even having to pedal downhill at times! It was pretty nasty in there.
The stretch from TO back to Agoura was all headwind and very slow. We saw only a couple of other riders the entire day. Still, a fun ride with some good bike handling practice!
