We split into groups and started heading up the mountain. After a nice B ride in Sweetwater yesterday, I was anxious to do ride some good trails on National. The them of my ride was an occassional hike-a-bike, which looks something like this:
Drew from Santa Cruz had some amazing technical climbing
The man that made it all happen for the Phoenix stuff, Cactus Joe, had another amazing aid station with good stuff.
Then we biked up 24th Street to National, 29 miles of good, technical riding with a great group in about 90 degree weather. Thank you again Drew and Matt.
