This is our longest day to date. Not only was it long but we had two major climbs separated with 5 to 10 miles of rolling hills. These climbs caused one rider to stop for the day.
The hardest part for me was not the climbs but the 101 freeway. Today this freeway had very heavy traffic which would rival I10 west with some difficult elevation changes that can’t be matched on a Texas Interstate Highway.
We stayed on the 101 until we exited at our town for the night, Coleta. However, after the exit we still had between 10 to 15 miles.
After a quick shower and dinner via Uber we felt almost human again.
