Tuesday Ride. No Prisoner’s Ride. New friend, old friend.
17.0 miles, 1:19:29 moving time, 1,891 ft elevation, 8 strava trophies
We saw the return of MarcO, an old friend to PTC from a few years back. And Rob, a new PTC guy, who later had a mechanical on Hampstead.
Peter and Derek and Andy led the group out at RBAC; we climbed out of the arroyo to Linda Vista to Highland to Descanso (5%). We climbed Hampstead (8-12%), where Rob had a derailleur problem. He ended up calling home for help. Sugar Loaf (15-18%), St. Katherine (10-13%), Glen Oaks (5-9%). It got dark a little earlier. Good times other than the mechanical. I wore my light tint photochromatic lens, cuz most of the ride is in shade. And I had my front head light, but it ran out of battery juice, just when it got really dark. hmmm.
