Because of our moving, it had been 5 weeks without a ride. My route plans changed when I meet up with Rex. We left the road so he could show me a scenic way home. A way with a view.. and fences.. and hills.. and poison oak!
This was my planned first road ride. I got to ride it a week later. Compare the elevation difference on the chart label. Note- there is NO level ground here.
