Hey, that looks like Henry Coe

It's either steep up, or steep down.

Nice ride.

That's an epic ride for sure. It would be at the top of most anyone's list. Love the scenery too. I downloaded the track, as I do for many of your rides, for my dream ride list.

But even recently, didn't I see one of your rides at Tahoe or Auburn exceeding 7000' of climb at altitude? And the mileage was close. Seems to me you've got a lot of other great rides like this, or better. You just keep 'em coming.:thumbsup:

Don't use that track. Look closely and you'll see I was all over the place because I often lost the trail coming off fire roads. I've done 100's of rides with much more climbing and greater mileages. But that doesn't automatically make them greater accomplishments. 60+ miles at Auburn is a lot easier than 50 solo miles on rugged desert trails in the middle of nowhere.

Nice work man!

Beautiful country and pics of your adventure! Looks like those Cactus trees don't give much shade! :lol:
