The last two days wore on me, my Gps tallied 16000 feet, I detoured to Alum rock park going up The casual Penetencia creek trail. Going up the ridge trail in Alum park was steep in sections , it started to rain lightly and get chilly. I rode a steep sided Sierra vista to the top. Sierra and Felter roads would be a beautiful road ride,
At this point, my body started slowing down and running out of energy. I made a decision to split today’s ride and ride 2500′ Mission peak in better weather. I might have been a bit ambitious planning three big elevation days in a row, I will pedal on tomorrow stronger in health and mind.
Thank you for all the support everyone, This moment my thoughts are on “one ridge trail section at a time.” This is what I signed up for, spacious views, unpredictable nature and challenge. With this comes a range of emotion, thoughts and feelings . I look forward to exploring the next bend in the ridge trail.
