Adventures aren’t had sitting at your desk. But you can certainly plan them there. 

ridebyshooting:

On Thursday morning I was sitting at my desk feeling a little low. What I need, thought I, is an adventure.

Just me and Pumpkin Butter. But it needs to be somewhere different. Somewhere I can drive to in the Rogue. Thus was born a spontaneous adventure called #roguepumpkin.

I decided to head north, since it was supposed to be quite hot down south. Decided I really wanted to ride Avenue of the Giants. So I plotted out a route, started examining the segments, and realized I had accidentally plotted the exact route that the Tour of the Unknown Coast takes. (Regarded as one of CA’s toughest centuries).

Left on Friday and it took 7 hours to drive to the north end of the Avenue. Stayed in a hotel in Loleta, CA. 

The ride itself started with about 40 miles of relatively flat riding. But gorgeous riding. The part of the Avenue I rode was fantastic, but really, the ride along Bull Creek Flats Road was just stunning. I narrower road (no lines) and just amazing scenery. 

After that, I climbed Panther Gap, which was switchbacky and long (about 7 miles) and descended down into Honeydew. The descent, and the one later between the wall and the 8 mile climb) was steep and unforgiving. I stopped a couple of times to let my discs cool down some. And to take photos. Lots of photos. You can see them all here (about 30 in all, including the ones in this post).

Drove all the way back to Santa Cruz on Highway 1, which was epic and lovely and all was well with the world. Just wish weekends were three days. Anyway, it was a great day and super micro-adventure with #roguepumpkin. Got me thinking about another one. 

When adventure doesn’t come to you, you go find it.

Good night of racing out at PIR tonight, Clint did a great job with the course, and Abby, Jeremy, and Cole (pictured above) all looked great out on the course.

Great course indeed! Even though it felt like I did a million laps, it was fun each time through
