Red Gate via Fickle

Today I rode up Fickle Hill road. The views from 2,000 feet were spectacular. I could see the flat fields of Arcata and miles of the Pacific.

In Kneeland I dropped Red Gate and quickly lost all that elevation. This 3 hour ride was just what the doctor ordered. Only 6 of the 28 miles are trail, but those few miles are punishing!
