I rode home from work today for the first time since May. It was hard. I guess my fitness has slipped a bit since Bike Month.
Although I was on my 29er, I didn't do much in the way of dirt. I suspected I would be tired by the end even if I stuck to the roads, and I was right.
This ride was more difficult than the climb I did to the top of Mount Rose a couple weeks ago. Even though I had less elevation gain today, the hills around here are steep. You can check out the GPS output here if you want.
I didn't see a lot worthy of pictures. One weird thing was the water level of Lake Natoma. I had never seen it so high. Normally the lake is quite placid, but today you could actually see the current moving downstream. There isn't much of a snow pack left in the Sierras, so I found it odd. Perhaps this is because the salmon run just started in the American River?
Anyway, that's about it. Time for some much deserved ice cream.
