Tuesday June 23rd, AM. Riders: Christon, Lina, & Nils. Organized via sf2g.
Pacifica at 7:30:
4 of us climbing away from Pacifica:
And then Niles went off solo tucked into his TT bars as we 3 maintained "Christon endurance pace", ie, Christon's heartrate must stay between 140-155, even when drafting off you:
On the Tunitas climb I pulled away and saw Niles for the first time in 20 miles. Passed him on the steep portion, which gave him enough motivation to pass me in full TT mode on the long shallow bit at the end. Wanting to get to work before 11, but needing just one more hill, we ended up continuing on together where I had my revenge up Cervantes:
- took a nice path from Sneath through Skyline College spied in satellite view. This path, which juts off Moreland Dr, looks like the original Moreland Dr (possibly from before the county jail) which has been left to crumble.
- the 3rd Verde Rd sign is the magic one that leads to Lobitos Creek Cut-Off -- a faster way to get to the Tunitas climb. We failed to recognize it and took Tunitas all the way, passing the new bike hut (which had an Open sign!).
- iPhone's battery ran out near the end from overuse. Poor thing.
