    Where are you riding this weekend ? 03/23-25 ?

    I'm still not sure, but will end up riding one of these below.

    1. My house in N. Fontana to GMR up to shack and back home

    2. Upper Sart. Watterman up Mt Rubidoux to Norco and back.

    3. Tour De Sart, Maybe Weir Canyon to PCH and Back

    Either to Packard's Coffee in Ramona & Return.

    Or my San Luis Rey-Couser-Lilac Loop.

    Going to try to reign in the ponies and not go too hard before Hell's Gate, but we'll see how it goes.

    FWIW, if you're doing your ride on Saturday, I think 7 days may be enough recovery. I'd taken a screenshot of the relevant section of the PMC from WKO+, and this was my build before the DV Double, followed with 9 days of rest (just 2 easy bike rides in that time).



    From very high load to fully rested in top form in 9 days. Since I only needed 7 days to recover according to the chart, I added a workout on the 26th so it took 9 days to get to my target TSB (which is +15). That little yellow line poked its head up into the positive numbers perfectly timed for the DV double.

    Science!

    Sounds like fun, what is the elevation gain? I most likely will be doing Baldy to front side of GMR and then the reverse.

    It'll get about 8000-8500ft I believe. I think I'm doing the same route Saturday, but setting off a little later than idoru.

    @Lesper - I spoke too soon. The wifey just texted me and said she's coming. So.... later start (approx 9AM), shorter route (Front and Back of GMR only).

    Going to have to take it easy. I did sprain my ankle a little on the BA test run (Didn't realize one of cleat was a little loose...) Been taking it easy on commute, etc to heal up. Feels all right but I am not going to subject myself for the chance. Probably go out for easy 2-3 hours endurance spinning around the town... avoiding hills if I need to.

    Unless you're ruling something, it's rein.
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    I am doing the "Redlands R.U.F.F." ride in Redlands (duh!). It's a charity ride that benefits mostly dogs and their beautiful dog park. I am told the ride goes thru historic downtown, beautiful orchards, past the beautiful dog park and foothills.

    Gotta get up real early to get there...5 AM.

    What length ride and how much climbing are you looking for?

    A lot of people round Rancho/Fontana ride up cherry (changes name when it turns), up to Donkey road, at the end of donkey road is a gas station where you can rest, then tackle either Lytle creek up sierra avenue/lytle creek, or can go up to the San Manuel ampitheater. Mostly less traveled roads here although most don't have bike lanes. An up and back route will get you about 30 miles.

    Or you can ride to Glendora on Foothill and turn up towards GMR, where you will see lots of forum members riding and then ride back from top of GMR (GMR is a little higher difficulty but worth the ride, 6% average)

    can ride to redlands area and ride upper SART too

    Hoping it's dry Sunday morning, maybe a ride on SART to the beach and back or Shady Canyon and Back Bay.

    Had to cut my GMR ride short today. I was pretty lethargic today and when the batteries in the power meter died (they lasted a year) I figured I'd skip the 2nd half of the ride.

    For Condorita: Certainly was a great day out there. Saw a bobcat on the side of the road staring at me as I went past. Beautiful animal.

    I used to love going to GMR and GRR when I had a motorcycle. Big props to those who cycle up there, I would die going half way up.
