    Oh my! Lost for words on this one. Epic would be a start. Could this be the first time Palomar has been repeated this many times?

    Hello Bill Pinnell I had my car parked at the taco shop. I had a cooler full of options for food and hydration. At the top during restaurant hours I refilled my 2 bottles with water and ice for the descent. It was so hot the ice was melted before I got back the taco shop. Thank You Tim but I am getting too old for this lol

    So Cool Mr REV!!!! So this is a great example for the power meter and the new bike with the right gearing, and of course Lori might have spurred you on a little :-)

    You're the man George. Does this mean you can take two weeks off of your daily climbing.

    So cool, I think I want to do this next year! How was it riding in the dark on palomar, that is my biggest concern.

    Hello Rachel! As an endurance cyclist I am used to riding at night and through the night until morning. Palomar Mountain was fine to ride at night. The upper, from the split at the 76, was quiet at night. The busy and scary section was from the taco shop to the split. Now my question for you is how much climbing have you done in a day? Are you interested in Everesting? And lastly how did you find out about my ride?
