    Happy Birthday, G!

    Fox finally returned my fork and shock this week (I blew the seals on a Grand Canyon North Rim singletrack trip), so I am heading out to Turnbull Canyon tomorrow morning. The Habitat Authority is also having signups for their volunteer trail watch program, so I'm thinking of signing up for that.

    Sunday, I'm smoking a 13lb brisket and working on some patio furniture, so no riding for me.

    Happy birthday!

    Can't ride Sat, got some family things to do, but I hope to get out Sun. It isn't supposed to get too hot. I haven't done a good over 40 mile ride in a while. Probably head out from home in San Dimas and loop around Victoria Gardens. Try and keep a relatively flat ride.

    Happy Birthday Genaro!

    Busy weekend here too, but will go for an early Saturday ride up Lytle, hopefully will have time to tackle shooting range/Final Climb again.

    HB Genaro!

    More SART for me. I know I'm spoiled, but it'd be nice to ride somewhere else for a change.

    78 Escondido -> Ramona

    It's the shortest route from point A to point B, but I've always had reservations about safety of this route. After seeing that there's a fairly well-traveled segment on Strava, I've decided to go and check it out.

    There's no shoulder for about half of the distance. Cars keep coming more or less non-stop, maybe 1 car per minute. Passing is prohibited (double solid yellow lane almost all the way.) When I saw other cars coming and I couldn't ride on the shoulder, I had to stop and dismount. In the end, my attempt looked like this

    The whole route took about 30 min. less than my standard route via Ysabel Creek -> Bandy Canyon -> Highland Valley, but I'd describe it as "barely tolerable" and I don't want to do that again, at least not with this much traffic.

    The attempt placed me dead last on the leaderboard for the Strava segment. Looking at other people's attempts, I see that the vast majority of them rode up the hill without stopping or sometimes with one stop. I have no idea how they do that. Either I'm missing something or they all have a death wish.

    From Ramona, went to Santa Ysabel and Mesa Grande. As usual, did not see a single cyclist in either direction. On Mesa Grande, there were almost no cars, either.

    40mi on the SART. Still had a great time - biking with a power meter just makes things 10x more interesting for me otherwise I think I'd be bored to tears riding this trail every other day. Also hit 183bpm on the SART...probably my highest ever outside of the 2 cyclocross races I did. The trail was so empty this afternoon, saw about 25-30 people in 40 miles.

    GP, no riding for me in San Diego....I'm tethered to the house right now due to a newborn. I get 70-120minutes every other day, and I try to make them count.
