I has been a month since i got back on the saddle from my previous clavicle accident and i assure you that the road back to mountain biking condition was not easy.
Slowly but surely i would get my strength and endurance back. What better way to test yourself with an Epic route.
Here is the exact route we followed.
So let the climbing begin.
This picture would be the last time i would see Alib as she went of into her own little world and went super fast. I later saw her waiting for me up Main Divide with a smile on her face.
a couple of miles up ITT Goyo(Turiha's Friend) broke his rear wheel and had to turn around and go back to San Diego. Later on that day i found out that Turiha ended up buying a road bike.
Just a view of where we rode up from and to think we are not even half way up ITT.
For the most part ITT was dry and rutted with an occasional remnants of landslides from the previous rain.
I finally met up with Alib up in Main Divide and we had some more climbing to do which was quite painful. But you are rewarded with these views from the top which was great!
Main Divide was a little sucky because of all the loose shales. Alib trying not to dab the climbs.
On our way to Trabuco, we picked up a new friend that we met at Main Divide and was kind enough to show us where we can pick up Trabuco. Shortly after this meeting he would have a mechanical issue with his chain breaking. I gave him my only powerlink and i would hope for the entirety of the ride that i will not break a chain. But, i was really glad that we can help him out and not leave him out there stranded.
A little bit of snow left.
Finally! We reach the entrance to the trail head down Trabuco.

Lotsa baby heads and shales.
Darryl and Alib crossing the creek.
Darryl and Alib all smiles from the sweet singletrack trail of Trabuco. This would the last time we would see Darryl who was a really cool dude but please next time bring your own tools
Now off we go up the Holy Jim Trail.
Not a lot of pics from Holy Jim because we were desperately trying to hurry up.
No smiles for Alib on this climb.
we finished our day with some burgers from Toms farms.
Great day and very painful.
