Today's ride was 40 miles of long hill climbing. Abby got hit by a car in the firts five minutes of the ride but she was not hurt. We continued to ride up into the Hollywood hills and across to Topanga State Park where we were chased by a swarm of angry bees. Then we were stalled on the trail for 5 minutes debating which way we should go to get around the rattlesnake that was taking a nap in the middle of the trail. all this and we still made it to Tap Dancing class with 10 minutes to spare.
