Another Great Ride today!

I'm starting to enjoy this cycling thing! I did another challenging ride for me today. I had kind been eyeing the long hill Scripps-Poway parkway right after Pomorado....well, I decided to ride over to Scripps-Poway today to check out the bike path next to the 15 and was going to take a left at Pomorado but felt good after the downhill to Pomorado... I thought "what the heck" and took off up the hill! At the start I thought maybe I'd turn around in the middle and coast back down, but once I got in a rhythem I was set! I then decided to tackle my other scary roller on the 56 from Pomorado to the 15. I did the whole ride (about 13 miles) with stopping on any hills, only red lights! I couldn't beleive it! I promise I won't post a thread for every ride I do, but these last two have been pretty monumental for me. Here is the link to the route and elevation I did today: http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united...iego/360736366

That's good. I found that going southbound on Pomerado at S-P seems more difficult than going up S-P past Pomerado. What do you think?

The long stretch of S-P further east, between Sycamore Canyon and 67 is quite difficult as well. It isn't very steep, but it's long enough that I feel quite tired at the end.

Dave,
I haven't done that stretch of Pomorado yet, but it does look quite steep. I'm just pretty stoked I'm progressing.
