Meltdown on Route 89 (aka West Shore of Lake Tahoe)
We started heading west toward Tahoe City on Rte 28. There was a lot more climbing than I had expected. I totally underestimated this ride. I figured rollers, these were grades! Long, steep grades. I would get in my lowest gear and just climb the best I could. Most of the time when I got to the top I could see the boys in the distance. Sometimes they would end up pulling over and waiting for me. We stopped in Tahoe City for lunch (a sandwich at Safeway). This was technically the half-way point.
