Failure again on Lemmon, after riding through Green Mountain, I returned the same way I came up, skipping Milagrosa to bolt down the highway. I know where the Sunset TH is to connect to Summerhaven, but I have never ridden the Butterfly to Mt Bigelow (which I hear has a number of down trees, another reason to pull the plug early)The GPS is fond of the new bike, although it turned off a few times during the ride.
36.9 miles (approximately 15 of those miles are from the descent, and a few miles were lost in the GPS turning off)
8235 feet of climbing!
