Too bad I make really bad decisions. Now let me ask you...does the name Happy Valley Road make you think that you will be riding on a nice Valley Road? I thought so. Well it was not a valley and I was not happy! I start going down the road, and it's starts to ascend, but I keep thinking I'll be able to cut over soon so I can get to the Dam Road which is down hill. Well, even though I was feeling lazy today, I am also very stubborn, so I wasn't going to turn around and go the other way...so I kept going all the way up the hill! Finally I got to the top and was praying that I would end up down on the Dam Road when I came down the hill. Alas, I couldn't find the Damn Road! (hee hee) instead I ended up in the middle of the Three Bears, either way I went I had to go up the bears.
All in all I ended up ascending and extra 1,000 feet, because I wanted to avoid a 200 foot climb! Yep, I am a dork! On the bright side...I didn't injure myself on this ride! Woo hoo. It's been 9 days!
