5 of us rode to the beach and climbed one of the canyons. We spent 15 miles or so on Pacific Coast Highway, which I hate. On a weekend like this we are just being passed by 1000s of cars. Once we finished that section we did the canyon climb. It was humid, like everyone was soaked humid. My friend took off his gloves because he was slipping on the bars. Seems backward to me, but that's what he did. Anyway I climbed ok and I was a little concerned about that.

My friend had a coupon which got me a free sandwich and my other friend bought me a soda. Bonus! Around 60 miles with 4400 feet of climbing but I think it was more because my friend's Garmin was acting up and the club schedule said there was more. Regardless, I was happy to finish with no cramps, no nausea, and no weird heart rate stuff.
