OF NOTE: the wind had strong gusts bur did not inhibit me today.
today i took one of the side roads that i had no idea where it went. went down a road called mesquite valley. i wondered where it went so i took it. it was a nice ride. a few challenging steep hills that i did make. quite a refreshing ride. i really enjoyed the experience today as i rode unfamiliar roads. the ride total time was just under 2.5 hrs and that includes two 5 min breaks to eat and hydrate.
i am very happy with the total trip total time. my goal is to make a 30-40 mile ride in less than 4 hrs. i know it can be done on a road bike but i want to make the ride on a trail bike. i think i can make it.
