It was 9 am and I was feeling the San Bernardino heat. The only thing on my mind was to get to the Devil Canyon Rd climb everyone had told about and roll back down to the pool. During the climb, I just focused on reaching the top. Seeing that many were struggling and walking their bicycles better, motivated me more. After reaching the top came the fear factor. This trike is a speed machine. I felt the forces of gravity get me at speeds beyond my comfort zone. But as I ride more hills, I know any fear will be diminish.
