Butler Valley Loop

Seeking summer heat I headed into the mountains.

My stats were on par despite and because of my lack of riding. My legs weren't ripped, but they were fresh.

46 miles in 3 hours 15 minutes with a max speed of 46.7 mph.

I thought about mixing up my routine. But there are reasons why this loop is the best. The climbs are long and steep. The descents send me flying over everything from buttery fresh blacktop, to pot-hole ridden tarmac, to straight up gravel. Oh yeah, the views are grand. It's always exciting, and always a challenge.

Leif donated an older molder digital camera, but I can't find a cable to get the photos on my computer!
