ONELESSCAR # 0048 - Morongo Ride

Climbing Highway 62 on a track bike was probably not the best idea, and having such a high gear ratio didn't help either.

A front and rear break would also be pretty smart too, trying to stop at 35 mph with mere leg strength (downhill) is terriflying. (Did I mention the 18 wheelers driving only 5 feet away?) .

I'll be much more prepared next time I go up there.

. . . but I do have to say this was probably one of the most rewarding and fun rides I've ever been on. Big ups to Mike & Adam for keeping the pace.
