90 w/ Palomar Mountain

The story:
Nikee emailed me earlier in the week saying that she wanted to ride on Saturday with a helping of "Pain and Tears. Pain. And Tears"

The Bottom Line:
90 miles
6 hours
12K+ of elevation gain, including Palomar Mountain (below)


The route

Some more pics...

Quick stop at the casino to try our luck beforehand...


Don't let the sign fool you - there is no love going up the mountain...


Lake Henshaw...

Big thanks to Nikee and Damian for joining me on this epic ride!

Pain and Tears- Check. You are a total beast for doing an extra 10 miles! That ride was an ass-kicker and you totally killed it. I hope the trail run went well.

Thanks again for letting me tag along with you guys.

So when are we doing Palomar Hill Repeats?
