    Looks like fun, but not sure I would be brave enough to ride on a road with a 65 mph speed limit. How did you get to the top?

    I rode the bike to the top.  A great training option.  But the problem with training exclusively in the mountains is that it turn into `grind and slide.'  Unbalanced training. 
     
    This weekend I drove to Borrego Springs and trained on flatland.  A very different experience.  The rider doesn't get a chance to let up in pedaling.  Having both climbing and flatland training is a good thing.  
     
    The 65 mph speed limit is o.k., as long as there isn't a stiff crosswind.  The road is sparsely traveled and vehicles often move entirely into the opposite lane.  Especially given that I have three high power strobe lights in back.
