Riding California - Clovis to Courtright Reservoir on the FrankenBike

So yesterday —after a few last-minute adjustments— I finally took the FrankenBike on a long-ish ride up the mountains. A 75 mile route of non-stop twists to Courtright Reservoir via Shaver Lake and back. 150 miles total.

From 4-lane curvy highways to twisty little back roads, the ride had it all and the FrankenBike proved to be a fantastic machine that carved every curve like a champion.

At the feet of a giant in McKinley Grove.






















Sadly, the reservoir level was extremely low due to the drought that's hitting the whole state of California.

The only straight stretch of road I found.. and it was a beautiful one.






A fallen giant :(






I know, I'm a chicken... but a happy one :)






Butt Rock!
