Rock Store

26.8 miles yesterday, including our second assault of Rock Store.

23 minutes, 15 seconds. New PR. Nearly a minute off our first time.

Now, in the interest of full disclosure, Hal 9000 discovered that the Rock Store climb is not “nearly 1400 feet” as originally posted here. That was based on lore. Hal 9000 clocked the Rock Store ascent at 1,102 feet. Still a hefty lift, but not 1,400.

The Unfat Machine and I did manage to count the switchbacks as we climbed.

9.

Nine switchbacks in 2.3 miles with 1,100 feet of climbing. It’s why the motorcyclists call it The Snake.

On our next assault we will be shooting to break the 23-minute mark. Maybe we can borrow some Tiger Blood from our Malibu neighbor?

The forecast looks like a very warm and dry March. Perhaps this is the month we will hit 500 miles?

Eat better.

Ride your bike.

Watch celebrities lose their mind live on screen.

Fair winds and following seas, Willy
