Riding the McDowell Mountains

I really need to be more consistent in reading the trail descriptions before pointing my bike towards the mountains on trails I’ve never ridden.

The final “big” climb I loaded onto my Garmin was essentially unridable, resulting in a miserable two mile hike-a-bike slog 1,300ft to the summit pass.

Fortunately, the back side of the mountain rewarded me with an ear-to-ear grin-inducing 1,700ft descent back to camp.
