No time constraints today. I went late morning because the hot is coming. NGR is still closed to everybody for bike turnout lane construction, so I drove to a soccer park near South Gate... worked fine.
SGR is of course easier than NGR, but not by that much - it starts at a higher elevation so the total climbing is less, and it's a little shorter and the tough sections aren't as tough as the NGR tough sections, and there's more shade and smoother pavement and less gravity... but other than those things... it's almost the same experience. Hopefully NGR will be open by Saturday.

|This rider gave me the four-finger wave... |
I pretended I was familiar with this greeting and returned the same gesture.
