    I led a group that included BigTodd on that route, we did sections 1-7 and it was a good day's ride.

    You are aiming really high for 1-14 by 3.30, lots of that route is 20-30mph stuff.

    I reckon you'd be beat up pretty bad to try and get that all in inside a day, let alone by 3.30.

    It'll be Africa hot at lower elevations, too. :1drink

    It was a good days ride, going fast, with minimal stops. The other groups behind us took considerably longer to cover it. Some coming into camp as it was getting dark.

    Might want to reverse the day 2 tracks, starting in Hemet to Idyllwild and then on from there.


    Africa hot is some bad shit sambo.

    Eric,

    You are doing a great job here for noobs and new big bike riders. This kind of encouragement and rides are what they need to come out and ride.
    Keep up the good work. :thumb

    Thanks very much. However, I want a do-over! I woke up feeling fine then went home from work sick yesterday at 10:30 and I've been in bed pretty much since then. Oh, and I got a speeding ticket Sunday coming back from Santa Barbara. I guess in the end that things are pretty damn good still. :freaky
