The six-mile crawl up Cima Road rises another 800 feet up to 5000 feet elevation and is quite pleasant with very little traffic
After the tough 10-mile ride up Morning Star Mine Road with the wind pushing me back, this uphill feels easy with the wind behind me. It helps that I'm filled with the excitement of a positive change in my schedule after the setback of my broken rear rack.
