LOTOJA Training ride #3

Tomorrow, Tuesday we will be leaving from Pats house at 8:30 am. The plan is to ride to Payson canyon, and climb to snow-line (approx. 4,200 feet of climbing) and return. Total trip is 55 miles.
For those who are up to it we will then continue up right fork which will bring the total trip to 90 miles, and over 6,000 feet of climbing.
Be advised, weather shows 70% chance of rain all day, and temps in the upper 40's.
Keep in mind if you are a "fair weather biker" that LOTOJA is a race that typically has strong head winds, Lots of rain, and many times snow.
Tomorrow will be a day to not only work on your physical fitness, but to increase your mental toughness as well.
