Started by my house in Banker&#039;s Hill, pedaled down to Harbor Drive where there&#039;s that lovely jog/bike path (and the cool bay breeze) and headed around to the other side of the bay to Point Loma ... <br> <br> Going up Canon Drive - the LEAST steep hill in that area - was a real trial - GNARLY!!! I probably stopped about 3 times going up that road, but that&#039;s what I can expect (for now!) I think that road would be physically demanding even with a geared bike! Also, the traffic on Canon Drive is really scary - the cars are hauling ass and there are lots of &#039;em. <br> <br> After that the rest of the way to Cabrillo Point was relatively easygoing. The road rolls up and down, but never too much. At the top of Cabrillo Point I flipped my wheel over to the freewheel and coasted a bit, although I have to say that by that point - about 10 miles in - I was so used to pedaling that I just kept doing it - coasting was boring. <br> <br> HOWEVER - I sure was glad when I got to Talbot Street going downhill towards the bay front. Now THAT is a STEEP road. Thank God I had my front brake on and in fine working condition!!! <br> <br> All in all, a really fun ride, a very demanding workout, and I look forward to doing again and again until I go fixed the whole way and without stopping.
