California MUni Weekend training series

California MUni Weekend is up in Bishop this year (September 17-20) and it includes a climb to White Mountain Peak (14,252′) so it’s time to get training. Ray and I started it out with a mellow one on a beautiful day in Joaquin Miller Park. I think I won Best Biff on one of the new side options off Sequoia Bayview, but Ray made up for it in volume.
