Everything started out grand. Timothy from Sole Tech met us in Long beach, after our subway ride with the bikes, and bought us breakfast. With a country scramble in my belly we took off for the 35 mile bike path to the Angels Crest road out of Azuza. Man, climbing is waaay harder than it looks in the Tour De France videos I watched. We stopped at 60 miles, camped, ate ramen, and crashed.
Second day………..hardest shit I’ve ever done. We pedaled uphill for 5 hours straight (riding time). Our lunch spot turned into a dinner spot and now we are crashing in a hotel in Wrightwood, CA.
