56 miles + 8,000 feet of climbing = one tired biker
I needed to get some fitness in, so I decided to leave my house in east Hemet and ride to the top of Black Mountain, which is about 7800 feet above sea level. How hard can it be? 🙂

It was a beautiful, clear day. I started to bonk a little on the last climb coming back to Pine Cove on the highway, but I finished pretty strong and feeling OK.
check the elevation profile. Makes Palomar Mtn seem like childs play!
