Cycle of Violence: Labor Day Miles
Yesterday’s ride: 50.21 miles, again into the perilous urban jungle of Palos Verdes but on a slightly different route. Kept a pretty hard pace over the rollers and on several short climbs, with an elevation gain of 2,123 feet and a maximum speed of 44.9 miles per hour on one descent, when I came across a friend in a van and he let me draft downhill, about 6 feet off the bumper. Big fun. Today’s ride: 37.68 miles, at an easier, semi-recovery pace, with no real climbing. Parties going on in the beach cities, everyone proudly displaying their latest tattoos and piercings. Tomorrow will be even crazier. Total mileage for Sat/Sun: 87.89 miles.
