I'm about 50 yards ahead of Tricia, and look how far below me she is.
That little sliver of blue on the left is the ocean!
The downhill afterward was wonderful. We ended up in descending into Cayucos and looked forward to riding up Highway 1 along the ocean back to Camberia. Alas, there was a huge headwind that made our 14 mile-ish ride back take forever. Maybe even longer. But at least it was cold as well.
For me, one exciting feature is that I made my Strava Climbing Challenge or 7500 meters. Yep, a website made up a random number and then awarded me pixels Yet I'm thrilled. Pavlov in action I guess.
