Left Hand Canyon in Early May
Streams are Up
But earlier in the week it began to warm up and green up and the riding weather has been improving quickly.
Sunday was long-ride day and per plan I increased the distance another 10-15% to 85 miles with 2600 feet of climbs. The wind was against me the last forty miles so I was quite tried when I finished. 85 miles was the right amount. Next week I will push the distance and difficult of the ride. I don't know if I will increase the distance but I will definitely increase the amount of climbs. I also rode the first fifty miles without pushing the pace--expecting the last forty miles to be hard. If the winds are favorable, I will push the pace somewhat.
