But after all is said and done I really don't feel that bad. I'm thinking of putting this ride into a weekly rotation.
Nice going and really lush scenery along Santiago Cyn. In time, reward yourself with a stroll up Silverado Cyn. Only about 12 miles up/down but shady and cool in the morning. Mini-mart about halfway up if you need to refill.
