A full 7 days off the bike and I picked a pretty rough route(s) to ride for two days.
Saturday was a shorter distance with not too much altitude gain. Nonetheless, the two other local friends that came along were all similar pace, so we could stick together and kept each other motivated.
On one of our descents down, I saw this and just had to stop for a pic
Sunday was a rough day in the saddle mainly due to soreness from the previous day’s ride. Nonetheless, I still needed to get in the mileage and elevation, so I toughed it out and finished the intended course. The peak was definitely the roughest part of the ride since I had never ridden deep section rims with such high gradient.
