A lot of people are out at Interbike this week, leaving the Specialized headquarters rather quiet. On those days a small group likes to rally a ride out to do the Cañada loop. It sits on the south side of Henry Coe State Park and rolls through some beautiful NorCal scenery. We covered nearly 40 miles, averaging 19mph and climbed close to 1500' in two hours.
We had eight strong riders as we worked our way up into the hills at tempo. We began to split as we made our way on the latter half of the loop, finishing off the ride with a bombing decent before the long headwind filled stretch of road back to work.
