Pretty much my ride. I followed Wizard's Strava route. Instead of heading up to the Botanical Gardens, I pedaled up Renton Road, around East End & onto Divide. Also took Black Jack to Cape to Middle and climbed back out. Wizard's stats were 31 miles & 5300'. LOTS of wildlife and stellar views. I'm really glad I went for it.
Epic ride with my friend Todd B - harder than I thought but a lot of fun

The 2012 Catalina Island Middle route will challenge riders with steep climbs, flowy single track and fast fire roads. The views on this ride are unparalleled!
