King Ridge-Meyers Grade

Humbled. That’s how I felt when I finished the Kings Ridge ride. It was only 55 miles, but it was easily the most challenging ride I’ve ever been on. The sheer quantity and severity of the climbs was daunting and the descents were downright frightening in some places. However, the scenery along the ridge and along the coast was spectacular. Even that is not going to make me come back to this ride any time soon. I might feel different next year, but right I’ll be happy to see Kings Ridge and Meyers Grade through a windshield.
