Climbing from Spring to Winter

Spring blooms early in California. As rain threatens to literally rain on my training parade this weekend, I shuffled things around and climbed Palomar yesterday. Mike conveniently came down with a "cough" so he could join me.

These are the cattle grates all over the mountain that feel great to ride your bike over.

The sun was out most of the way up.

For those of you who think I smile all the time - this is what I look like when I'm fairly uncomfortable and trying to hold my watts above 200 for extended periods of time.

The top felt like we had left spring for winter again.
