haven’t done this for a long time: Squeezing 3 bikes into my RDX!
and finally we are here, @ the trail @ 8:30am, Space Mountain in Thousand Oaks. The last time me and Tom were here was almost 2 yrs ago, everything changed! they now have a new “parking lot”! this used to be just a dead end street, now they actually painted it into a parking lot
Plenty of parking, today is not crowded, only half of the parking lot is filled
Galen is here, he drove 1.5 hrs to come here from his house! but Space Mountain was on his list for a long time, and today, he decided to ride without a Motor with us!
Last time I was here was with Tom too
and today we have 雲海 again! it’s a really interesting phenomenon, my 1st time seeing 雲海 here @ Space mountain, noticed the super thick fog STOPS and got blocked by the mountain in front of us
When we were driving ALL the way from the valleys, we were literally driving inside the cloud, and all of a sudden when we arrive here, it opens up with blue sky, so weird
and LOOK! Jarvis new SHIRT! hhaha he’s not ORANGE anymore! He said he JUST got this new shirt delivered last night haha
starting the day it’s a bit chilly, but get ready for some climb! for the past couple times, I have been riding Space mountain with eBike, and today, I decided to ride without motor too! haven’t done this for a while, it’s about 1500ft climb, and this is going to be Galen’s LONGEST non-motor climb as well. Weather is cool, so let’s enjoy the climb together!
Tom’s leg has built in motor of course haha
斷氣未呀!? Good job!
finally we are above the cloud
stopped for some beautiful pictures
behind Galen is a PITCH black black guy haha black guys are very very rare on the trails, and he’s actually riding an eBike
What a view! and the cloud is nonstop moving towards the right and disappearing too
finally made it up half way to the bench, everybody is resting here
Haven’t done Space Mountain without motor for a long time
Tom already waiting for us here of course
雲海 view from the bench
then, the trail changed COMPLETELY, they actually dug a brand new trail and the previous super steep section is gone, now it comes down to the road like this
brand new trail, see where that stick is? going up used to be the old trail, and they blocked it off now
haha 好慘 🙂
finally made it to the top! what a beautiful view!
really did not expect the view to be so beautiful today, all layers of mountains and cloud
when you need a drone, you did not bring it… haha
my Santa Cruz with the 雲海
Galen’s GoPro is growing a LOT of hair now lolz
back to the bench, me and Galen 斷哂氣, even I have reached my leg climbing limit too, 1500 ft
