| ||Great to be back on this loop.
1:07 beeks, 1:47 peasants, 2:32:50 to Motorway. ||1602||154/184|
| ||It's been almost a year since I did this ride. Took a few minutes off my best time, not too shabby. |
| ||Haven't been up Meadows in almost a year. Gave it a shot, still have to stop a few times. 18:18 to the top (PB!) and 5:45 coming down. ||762||151/186|
| ||Heat and some knee issues slowed me down a bit. ||1663||155/185|
| ||Lunch ride. New personal best. Love those rides when it feels like all cylinders are firing and the bike just goes where you want it to. ||716||159/187|
| ||Part of a wonderful 3 hour father's day ride. I still think this is one of the best "under 2 hour" rides in OC. ||745||150/172|
| ||I knew I could do the miles but it was going to be rough. Everything went well this time, and I was happy with my results. It was incredibly hard but that's what I signed up for. ||1189||145/171|
| ||Cooler day, took it easy for all but the main climb. 13:55 up mathis. Trying not to push too hard before saturday's Traverse. ||571||154/189|
| ||Included road ride to/from work. 26in tire on back of 29er.
15:05 up mathis, hot and slow. ||569||151/180|
| ||1:07 to Beeks. Almost a PB!! Did most of the ride in middle chainring. It was hot and I didn't see a soul, except for the construction workers grading the road. ||1189||148/174|
| ||Lunch ride. Took Kevin's Epic. Man thats a fun fast feeling bike. Didn't make it up mathis fast though.
14:11 up Mathis. ||540||143/180|
| ||New PB! yeah! ||2928||147/170|
| ||1:14:27 to Beeks (not my best)
1:56:30 to Peak (not my best either)
Kept an easier pace and felt much better at the end. ||1543||148/170|
| ||Lunch ride with Twain. Added Coyote and DC. Working on threshold power when possible. DC is too steep to keep HR under control. ||154/182|
| ||Lunch ride with Twain. Tried to take it easy up Mathis for once and save the legs a bit. ||640||151/174|
| ||1:09 to Beeks. 1:49:37 to Peak
Hot out, not to many riders.
Getting ready for the Traverse. ||151/172|
| ||Evening ride with Christina and Twain
13:06 up Mathis (New PB!!) ||640||158/189|

Very hot, very fun. Knee is finally feeling strong. Coming down was the most fun I've had on this bike.
1:29 to 4 corners. 48 min to peak. 41 min coming down. ||1531||159/180|
| ||1:12:13 to Beeks.
Knees not feeling well yet. ||1109||145/168|
| ||Lunch ride with Twain. My fitness has gone down and his gone up. Added Coyote and DC for more suffering. 4:41 up Cholla was good, but the rest of the ride was hard. I didn't know my heart could do 193 bpm. ||679||170/193|
| ||First real ride since getting knee tendonitis. 5:10 up cholla and 5:40 down mathis. Beautiful weather, so glad to be back on 2 wheels. ||150/182|
| ||Solo lunch ride. 5:12 down Meadows I think is a new PB. ||692||147/173|

| ||Hot lunch ride. 13:44 up Mathis, 2:15 down Cholla. First time out on my new Reba fork. ||616||157/188|
