Mt. Laguna Bike Ride
We got off to a bit of a slow start today, so we only did a six mile bike ride, but it was nearly perfect for those six miles! It was a lightly travelled back-road on Mt. Laguna with a good surface, and it had some good climbing involved -- not so much that I couldn't ride it, but enough so it was a slow climb where I just had to focus and crank away, ignoring those legs which gave a bit of a protest. Hauling a trailer with a kid in it really provides a good workout! The road really was exactly what I was looking for, I just wish it was a bit longer.
Jeannie riding up the slight incline with some beautiful fall colors. She makes it look pretty easy -- of course she's not hauling the trailer carrying her favorite child.
Working my way up a pretty decent hill...of course I still had enough energy to snap a selfie.
The road we rode out. Nice parking area at the beginning (with a bathroom and picnic table) and even a store. We weren't originally planning on doing this road, but we needed to pick up the forest pass at the store, so we decided to just ride from there.

Today's exploration opened up quite a bit of new, very interesting territory for me. I can easily keep myself busy in this new pocket...

Even Failure Can Be Bliss
It was a warm 91 degrees when I got out of the car, but I was still itching to get started on my 2,000 foot climb up Lusardi Road.
