04/15/17 Was going to do a different route, but wound up doing the same. 2 or 3 big group rides, including one with a rider on an e-bike talking on their cell phone...great...now all it takes to climb 1000 feet is a credit card, not sacrifice, discipline, etc...I have a feeling we're going to be having access issues. Glad I went for fitness reasons, but frankly it sucked and I felt like I was at Disneyland or something--the opposite of what mountain biking used to be to me. Hope this is the first and last time this happens, but I doubt it--I bet E-bikes are selling well.
04/14/17 Took it easy, wore the heart rate monitor and just tried to keep my breathing / heart rate under control. Felt pretty good. Slow leak in my rear tire but fixed it fine at the bench on top of Oak. Beautiful day. Cactus was crazy, hadn't ridden it in a while and the mustard made it tight in spots and my handlebars are old school--I think their length in MM starts with a 6...
08/15/15 Lots of people out beating the heat early this morning in Oaks. Not sure I've seen so many riders and hikers before. Passed a large group going up Oak. Took Cactus down, feeling pretty good on the descents--I need to add some variety. Thinking of a big rider tomorrow but gotta go early--supposed to be a scorcher.
05/02/15 Hot out there between 11am and 12pm but nice in the tree cover--what little there is. Ran into a friend at the top of Barham. Had to walk from the gate to Robber's Roost--the two week break didn't do me any favors. Work has been a bear / hard to get out for rides.
