Mickelson Trail MM 60-52

We rode south this time from the campground. Uphill again. Still beautiful of course.

Billie checks the tires before every ride. Today, she lowered the recommended PSI – a very good idea as it turned out. There were many patches of sand and the tires handled the challenge quite well.

MM 52. I did not want to climb anymore. 8 miles in 2 hours. I turned my bike around and texted Billie who was ahead of me.

Now for the really good part. Downhill for 8 miles, minimal pedaling, maybe 12 mph. The back tire fishtailed through the sandy gravel spots, so faster was possible but not smart. Less tire pressure was a really good idea. 16 miles total. Tired legs.
