spokes // episode 8 :: return to back bay
Today I return to do the Back Bay Loop in Newport Beach with Mark, who had only done it one time before. Mark shot some nice footage with his GoPro, thankfully. It was a lot harder of a push than the first time I shared this ride with you. I made a more leisurely ride of it that time. I was pretty wiped out at the end and stopped for a cup of coffee before returning home. It’s not until you get caught up with some semi-serious road riders that you realize that riding a heavy steel bike with textured tires presents a challenge keeping up.
