07/16/14 RokForm club ride at Aliso Woods. Climbed Mathis for the first time. Had to HAB one of those first pitches. Rode the rest. Garmin said 207 max HR; it was high, but probably not that high. Spent some time in the 160's for sure. Tough climb, really slow for me. Did not like that little dirt transition section heading to Meadows. Walked it and probably will every time I go that way.
Meadows was alright, a bit steep for me. Probably would be better on full suspension. It was the first time, though.
Got night to be out on a ride.
06/30/14 Solo after work ride. Felt pretty good going up Mathis. Finally feel like I'm getting back into shape. Didn't have to take any breaks and only had to get off the bike once; when I went OTB at the end of Alta Laguna trying to get out of the way for a guy riding up. Minor scrape and the mouthful of dirt summed up the evenings injuries. Fun ride though! Hoping I can sneak one in up in Big Bear this weekend.
