At this time my group was doing a 27 mile journey within the hill East of Gilroy, beginning on the Mendoza Ranch entrance to Harvey Bear park, which they drove to. I made a decision to begin early and journey their as a substitute, in order that bumped my mileage as much as 50, which took 4 hours. This was much more climbing than I’ve been used to, however fortuitously I’ve and 11×42 cassette on my Sirrus bike now, which helps with the steep stuff. It felt nice, and I wasn’t too drained after.
