Mariella was not riding today so it would give me the opportunity to strike out on my own. It was a good for both of us. I knew that I was probably not going to make the whole Mt. Lemmon itinerary.
The route took us out to Catalina Rd. which was a slowly rising false flat that took me to Mt. Lemmon Highway. There is a nervous sense as you look at the mountains before you that it is the big daddy around here.
I took my right into Mt Lemmon Highway and the climb was on. I got a quarter mile up the road and took a little fortitude break. Another BAC rider came up and stopped and took a break with me. He was encouraging. The vows were already nice.
I was fortunate because I got to descend without a car behind me the entire 4 miles. I do not believed I pedaled for 5 miles. I got the wave from the matching Lycra clad small clans as I descended down. Got a Gatorade after coming off the mountain
I got back to the barn with 2345 feet of elevation. I will take it. It is just a bite of Lemmon but it was great. Peace out. Tres
