Next ride on July 7th will be a doozy...
17 miles of intense climbs to spectacular lookouts rarely ventured to.
This definitely will be a difficult ride. "Death March" is an appropriate nomenclature for this route.
If you are scared, (you should be), there will be THREE separate bail-out points which you can choose to easily get back to the start. Try to challenge yourself and see how many checkpoints you can pass. In fact, I planned a taco stop at the half way point for those who might feel they can't handle the rest.
We will take our time on this route. Bring water. Be ready for some nifty views. And, remember, nobody gets left behind. Please arrive on time.
