40 mile bike ride through the mountains

Guadalasca

I needed to check out the Guadalasca trail before I lead a trail maintenance crew on it next Saturday (contact me if you’re in the LA area and want to play in the dirt). It’s a joint project with the CORBA biking group and their trail crew boss Hans Keifer invited me along on a group ride they were doing today. Hans organized it through the Over-the-Bars club, and those guys are mountain biking machines! I’m glad to say I made it through the countless hill-climbs and drops to the end, but it left me shattered. I like to think I’m fit, road-biking 4 days a week, but these are some tough hombres. Half of them were 20 years older than me too, which both gives me hope and makes me feel worse.

I’ll be spending the rest of tonight recovering with a martini and some Famous Dave’s
