Last Saturday ride...

I didn't plan it to be a big ride but it turned out to be a 5 hour ride to Mt. Wilson.

One of the ranger stations on Angeles Crest Hwy to top off on water and rest. That road takes us to another station called the Red Box but we decided to take another route that winds through the back side of that mountain and down that same road.



This is Angeles Forest Hwy...








Angeles Forest Hwy connects w/ Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road... and finally we merge to Angeles Crest Hwy.



Everything was very green and blooming except for the larger trees burned by the "Station Fire" in 2009.

This was a 65 mile long ride and by mile 35, I was done enjoying the scenery. I couldn't give up and turn around because there would be more climbing to do. I don't think I'll want to do this ride again. Too much climbing.

The EPS was superb and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's fast on the descents and climbs well and most importantly... it's the right color. I'm diggin' it.
