I only rode the east side of this loop, but I have no idea why anyone would ever ever want to end a ride with the climb up that road. Terrible. 6mi

Cold day with partially snow covered trails. I started a little ways down Tom Mays and had limited time, so I cut across on shortcut #2. 6.5mi — 0h 59m
