The Orestimba Creek Trail veers off the Orestimba Creek Road to the right. I'll stay on the road.
I left Jackrabbit Lake around 11h. To get up that short, steep crazy hill near Jackrabbit Lake, I had to take the 22-pound water bag off the bike and bring it up the hill separately.
Now I'm enjoying backtracking on sometimes-rocky Orestimba Creek Road on the same route I took to get to Jackrabbit Lake.
It is very warm today again. The gravel in the creek bed hasn't heated up much yet, which makes for a more pleasant ride than two afternoons ago in the late-afternoon sun and 100-degree air.
Orestimba Creek Trail veers off to the right and looks enticing, but I stay on the road because it will probably be more ridable, and thus quicker.
