Today I cycled the most challenging route I've attempted so far. I cycle out to the Calero Reservoir. This was the longest route (20 miles) I've done, but only by a little. What made it the most challenging is that it's highest elevation I've cycled to, at around 560 feet. My house is around 160 feet, so it's only 400 feet of rise. That rise is over a long distance, though the last 250 feet or so comes in about a 2 mile stretch. Not much by Tour de France standards, but excruciating for me!
Here's a picture I took with my phone of the reservoir:
Nice port-a-potties... And here's the entrance to the park at the reservoir:
It was a fun ride that I will definitely do again soon.
