Finds from the Grind - GMR Up and Down


My first time of 2018 doing the Glendora Mountain Road loop on 5/26/2018.

On this day, I came prepared for more variable weather. The clouds were threatening all day, but they never let loose, and there was even a bit of sunlight on the way back from Glendora. As usual, the best part of the ride was the descent, even though I did get held up by a couple of riders taking the upper curves of GMR gingerly. But even better, I didn't cramp on the way down. I attribute this to the cooler weather, but I think it was also me starting to snarf down more calories by switching my drink mix and eating a bit more.
