The final four miles of the normally easy climb to the Kelbaker Road summit at the power lines have never been so challenging

I begin the gradual descent down Macedonia Canyon Road, Mojave National Preserve
I'll drop down about 750 feet over about 2.5 miles. Of course, the road is rather sandy, since it runs down a wash, and my fat tires hiss while they ski downwards. I slip and fall off the bike while riding through a sand trap.
