did the full enchilada all the way to the observatory so roughly 28 miles with approx 2 miles total downhill in two stretches after the usual 21 miles in turnaround point just past the palisades area. last 2.5 miles past the ski run (right vs continuing straight into the hamlet of summerhaven) pretty big sting in the tail. some nice distant desert views along miles 24-26 but the star is the first 16.5 miles (about a mile
past windy point). spectacular. if i do the climb again, probably just do the first 16.5 miles and turn around.

always more fun when it’s above 8,000 feet.

Did a 34 mile ride today before the rain set in. Slowly working my way up to a 50 mile ride but the next few days will be recovery with all the rain. Come to think of it I really need an indoor bike trainer.

72k. Should have been a nice and easy recovery ride but my competitive streak got the better of me and I there was no recovery.

37 miles @ 15.8mph with a 14mph wind that switched on the way home. This was on the CX bike which is heavier and has full fenders, so not very "aero".

More important to me is calories and heart rate. Speed is secondary.

Completed just over 19 miles today. Decided to work on my speed a little and I'm very happy with the improvement from two months ago. Tomorrow will be a longer ride.
