    Ride in Laguna Beach, CA
    What a great way to start a ride after a solid breakfast! We swung by Crank Bros. headquarters to say "hi" and "thanks" to one of our great sponsors. After a quick spin up the highway, Sonya and I then headed into the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park to get in some saddle time.

    Ride in Laguna Beach, CAToday's route wasn't anything crazy. Just a lot of gradual climbing under the southern California sun. Biggest factor today was the heat. With no breeze, the sun was baking the hill side with temps in the mid-80's.

    Here is a quick video of one of the singletrack climbs....and Sonya baking. Or I should say "shake'n bake!"

    Water was the order of the day. I went through almost 6 large bottles on our 3+ hour ride.

    Yep, more open and exposed climbing. Not hard to see today's route as it rolls down the hillside behind me.
