We started our Fall Hills series 2 weeks last and got our legs warmed up with sort climb up OLH, down WOLH with great views, and back up to 84.
This week will be a step harder. We'll go up Kings with a 4 miles climb. Regroup at top, then cross over and down Tunitas until West Star Hill, then we'll climb back up from Swett up to skyline, and a thrill ride down 84 to Alice crossing. Its going to be 50 miles and 3500ft from Luckys.
We surely hope that all of us are vaccinated by now. For non-vax riders, hmmmmm, may be you should stay away!
