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.
glad you rode scr. west to east isn't steep but it's long. east to west is shorter but steeper west of cook's corner. once you get acclimated with that, the aforementioned side trip up silverado canyon is worthy
as is the one up modjeska canyon and up live oak canyon down to trabuco canyon. it's okay to go slow...the scenery is pretty good.
