The Adventure begins with Bubba’s Pampered Pedalers from San Diego, March 12 …. 52 days from Dan Diego to St. Augustine with a day off every week, averaging 65 miles per day
Short in miles but long on climbing, 12 mile and 6 mile climbs, 6% grade … beautiful green mountains, warm day but cool night coming up.
So much green after a month in Tucson. So green it hurts my eyes.
Start of 12 mile climb to Alpine.
My home for the next 6 weeks.
