What the Road had in Store for Me

Well, I did it. I've been planning to ride up to Oak Glen to see some friggin goats for about a year, and I finally did it. I don't know the goats personally but they just happened to be at a good turn around point. And honestly I wondered why I hadn't done it sooner. It was mainly 8-10% for 3 miles (maybe?) so that's why I probably put it off. Apprehension, my evil nemesis and his evil henchman-Procrastination have stopped me from tackling this little climb. Yes, the last mile or so I had to stop about 5 times because the breathing, she was a problem. But now that I know I can crack the bottom half of the climb I'm aiming for the big petting zoo about a mile or so up the road. Setting my sights on the llamas and deer. After I visited the goats I got to drop into a super cruisy section that I've only driven but have envisioned riding it many times. I have to say it felt goood. It would of been even better if my fingers weren't frozen nubbins. So that was Sundays adventure, I say adventure a lot but this one actually was. I think we need rides like this to keep us coming back. Facing unknowns keep our rides fresh.
This was in front of a park.
A new way to keep the pervies out of the bathrooms?

Don't need to worry about that.
The goats that made me climb.
I call this one Bertha.
Cause it looked like she was
about to give birth'a.
Part of that cruisy woo-hoo! inducing section.


  1. I am so proud of you! I wish I would have been more motivated and commited to sharing this experieince with you. I hope to be able to do it with you another time.

  2. "she was about to give birth-a"......owwww. that one hurt!
