Amazing that this is my back yard. Despite its flaws California has some redeeming qualities. This was a challenging climb for me. Not so much because of the grade but because of the ruts, rocks, and roots making it more technical than my usualclimbs. The same phrase kept ringing in my head all day long and pretty much whenever I now ride. A phrase from Jon Kearley @nondotadventures.
“Get out of your granny gear. You are a stronger rider than that.”Minimal granny gear today @nondotadventures.
A little encouragement goes a long way! I surprised myself today on some sections of the climb and was also surprised I had so many spills. This trail is a great skill builder. #socalmountainbiking #trektopfuel #hoppytrails @menofmariners_mtnbiking #optoutside #clevelandnationalforest
