Another epic Descenders ride yesterday. We started in Santa Ysabel and heading to East Grade via Mesa Grande. Mike Hodges made a cameo as the RAC kids pedaled to Dudley’s Bakery on their way to Black Canyon.
We climbed East Grade and then down/up South Grade. A number of the faster guys also did the out-n-back to the Palomar Observatory. We saw Larry Tanzo, Matt Baab and the Ranchos crew as they came to Mother’s from climbing Nate Harrison Grade; good BWR training.
We returned back down East Grade and over Mesa Grade. 70 miles and 8,200 feet of climbing; more for the Observatory guys. Beautiful day and a great ride.
