2021/06/03 Another Loop of Montebello to Pagemill, This Time With Johannes
π 2021-06-03 01:01 in Hiking
Happy Johannes asked me if I wanted to bike up Mt Hamilton with him, and some remnant of common sense in me said that maybe it might not be the best time for me (I remember it's a very long, and very fun, drive up, but probably a long ass bike ride).

So, I thought it'd make things easier by offering a bike ride up montebello across to black mountain to pagemill. Afterall I had gotten up in less than 1h30 last time (starting from home)....

Oh boy, there was the small detail that I hadn't biked in over 6 months, and that sure showed. My legs were definitely not strong and it took me an embarassing 1h55 to get to the top of montebello

21mn just to get to the bottom of montebello was already not a good sign

It took me forever to get home (3h45 in all), but got home at 21:00 in the dark :)

Thanks a lot Johannes for joining me and being patient.
