Labor Day laboring

DEA and I got our for a nice ride in Cedar Creek and neighboring areas Monday morning thanks to the holiday. It was a nice dry, sunny, but chilly one.

Google Earth Map

A good chunk of the ride is twisty singletrack with very little elevation cahnge through paine barrons and nicely wooded areas. After a bit we decided to head up to the Mineral Site trail and then takes you ona fun descent through Sherwood Forest. As you can see ofrm the elevation below, the climb is basically up and up and up some more. We were both running our SS's and I was wishing I had gears. A few months agoe we did this climb and I was the first to the top, not this day, DEA cleaned my clock as I was suffering or should I say laboring.


Once at the top we stripped off the vests as we were plenty warm at that point so we snapped a couple pics.



Overall it was a great cap to the long weekend and we topped it off with a stop for coffee and donuts whcih were well earned, not that we needed them.

Ahhh yes, being able to kick JJ's ass on a climb- it only took him falling down and breaking multiple bones and sitting on the couch for 5 weeks for me to be able to beat him on that climb! I'm just glad I don't post my data- cuz I'd guess my max HR at about 200 trying to stay away from him on the climb. Good times- now we gotta get some more folks out for a good spin.
