Heart Attack Hill

After all the coding yesterday, me and Liz spent the evening on a bike ride in the Simi hills. We started off at the south end of First Street and went exploring on a different route than usual. We were lucky enough to see the ocean from the top of one of the hills, that’s the gleam at the bottom of the picture.

There’s no good map available of the loop we normally take, so I’ve experimented with Google maps. Here’s a link to the one I created, and I’ve embedded it below.

I did manage to achieve a first yesterday when I made it all the way up ‘heart attack hill’ without stopping. This is a really steep section of fire road that I’ve always made it 50 or 75% up before having to walk, but it looks like all the lunchtime riding I’ve been doing in Santa Monica, including a hill-climb up Temescal Canyon, paid off!
