I haven't done much road riding this year and with the Vuelta Espana happening now I got motivated to go for a nice long spin.
We are blessed to have a multitude of great climbs here in the Eastern Sierra and one of my favorites is Pine Creek.
Looking back towards the mouth of Pine Creek Canyon. The sunflowers are popping!
Pine Creek is quiet, beautiful, challenging but not brutal and I can even ride from my house. A fine day in the saddle!
