More fun than riding the road. Good way to loosen the limbs after climbing up.

Great up! I remember riding here back in 2002 with all the trees still up we used to push heavy as f’*k down hill bikes up and then get a punishing mid and root ride back down before our bike back to Palmy! So good to be back and be able to enjoy the up!!
