Got out on the new bike yesterday with my new tire. Much better, but still didn’t get up the hill. Too hot for one. Ran into someone more or less my age and we rode together for a while which was fun. We rode the Paradise trail off of the HOL, through Parkstone, and back down from 360. Great view from the ridge.
Not much color other than the yellow leaves of drought stressed Mexican Buckeye.
Also got to play with my new Garmin 305 which came with the bike. Fun, as it tracks elevation, grade, and heart rate as well as the usual speed and distance.
