Homeward Bound (Week 7)

After almost a month on the road, it’s finally time to head home. My vacation rides didn’t include much climbing so they devastated my average daily ascent. It’s nice to see that number creeping up again, albeit very slowly. However, I’ve got a lot of climbing to make up for if I want to hit my 100 Vertical Miles goal. 😳
