This post is mostly for me as a reminder of what it takes to pedal up to the top of Pinal Mt and down Six Shooter Canyon.
I left Phoenix at 5:00 this morning. I got into the parking lot in Globe at 6:30, and was pedaling by 6:45.
It was a little cool, prolly between 35 and 40, but I warmed up quickly as the sun came up around 7:30.
I did the 14 mile (4,000 vf) climb in 2 hours and 45 minutes. With one stop to adjust my seat and another stop to eat a candy bar. It was no land speed record, but it was my best time yet.
The mud puddles up high had ice, and there was a small trace of snow.
The Six Shooter was in great condition, except for a the leaves kinda obscured the trail. There were four pretty good sized trees the recently feel across the trail.
I got back to my car at 11:00, so the total trip time was 4:15.
