I find myself walking the bike on parts of the first mile down the north side of Pachalka Spring Road because it's so rough
This first mile, with its 400-foot elevation drop, was part of yesterday's hike, but I didn't realize how rough the road is because I was walking without a bicycle for baggage.
On the parts of this hill that I do ride down, I keep the brakes on and travel very slowly, so as not to rattle the 10-ton bike too much. I don't want to break my bike rack again like I did last year while on Ivanpah Road!
