Palomar Divide Gravel Ride

  • 85 miles
  • 10,000 ft of climbing

That is what I call a ride! One might ask; “Rob? why didn’t you ride with them?” simple answer.. Kathy is a savage and I am just a savage in training.

Palomar Divide trail

This is a moderately trafficked fire road. Starting on the north east side of Lake henshaw. If you choose to go to the top, it will lead you to the High Point Lookout tower.

Who Kathy Pruitt?

  • Mountain bike downhill jr. world champion
  • Single speed cyclocross national champ
  • Professional enduro racer

and other wise badass..

Relatively new to gravel and endurance riding. She’s looking forward to driving a little deeper into the hell of endurance racing later this year. With plans to race the BWR Cedar City.  

My contribution

On this day my role was a simple one. Bring cookies and water to the top of the mountain.

Mission complete!
