MORNING GREETED ME WITH MUCHO WORK. By 10am, I had gone from PJs to kit. A few more things to do... and at 1215ish I finally got out to stretch the ol' legs... and rest the ol' noggin.
A stunning Spring day.
Everyone was out.
And I had a plan hatching... why not ride up and hit all my 5 favorite climbs in Laguna Beach?
There's the celebrated "7 Sisters". Seven climbs from sea levelish to a thousand or so feet. Grades of up to 25%. But, 3 of the climbs, for me, just aren't that interesting.
So, my plan was the "5 Bros". 5 climbs, just as redonkulous, but with better views and suckyouin architecture. For the locals: Alta Vista, Temple Hills, Skyline to Top of the World, Summit Dr to Del Mar to Moulton Meadows Park, Sea Island to Isle Vista.
5000+ feet of climbing in perfect weather by myself.
The legs never tired.
With no reason other than cleaning the climbs, I found a blissful rhythm.
An easy sweat bounced off my Wahoo.
I was working, but it wasn't work. Just joy, at the end of a challenging week.
A verse came to mind, from the Book of The Old Diesel:
There's peace in the climbs.
