Every time this ride gets a bit easier for me. Felt great the whole way.
Felt awesome today. Nice to do a ride like this and have something left in the tank at the end. Nice breeze and great views.
Battle with Sol on the Sisters. Score was 5 to 2 in the end. The new Pina Team was flawless except for a flat on PI. Great ride today.
This ride was a great challenge. Felt great until Summit, which was a struggle. Park was real rough. No power left at all for that one. Looking forward to doing this one again.
Good group ride of 8. Got the speed wobbles going down PID which sucks, kinda made me pucker on some of the other descents. Good stuff but need to get a new set of brake pads after this....nice views for sure...
It took me 4 years of riding this biatch and on my 16th attempt I finally broke 3 hours. Conditions were perfect today and it took everything out of me.
Find me a bed! Nice ride, the ocean looked so blue. The temps were perfect. The company was great. Much better than the first time here.

Did not feel up to this from the start this morning but soldiered on. After the 3rd climb my pulse wouldnt go up so high and I felt pretty much exhausted. Nye's Place was insanely steep. No clue how people do it without compact cranks. Thalia wasn't so bad but Park finished me off. Started to feel better after a PB+B+H sandy at the Orange Inn. Need sleep. Next time I'm taking the 29er and heading back through Aliso Woods. Probably the hardest road ride I've ever done although 'Worlds End' in Wales is up there with this.
nice day to ride the sisters!! http://connect.garmin.com/activity/122256644
