Since we’ve only ridden just over 31 miles once and we need to be sure that we can ride 35 miles for CA I decided that we’d do our 17 mile route twice today. I wanted to do it twice instead of going the full length of the trail because once you pass this one part of the trail, I get creeped out.
So I tell Robbie my thought about just doing the 17 miles twice and he tells me that it’s not going to happen because we’ll get back to our starting point, which means we’ll be feet from our cars, and we won’t want to turn around and do it again. He was right. I worked us hard, we did the 17 miles in just under an hour (58 minutes) and when we got to our starting/turn-around point, I was beat and didn’t want to turn around.
