Last week I finally managed to get the Strava KOM for the Alviso Slough Loop after trying all year. I set myself a new goal to beat 27 mins for the loop on a mountain Bike and was surprised how close I got to that time today. After the weekend rains the trail was pretty roughed up and I was glad I had front suspension. I rode about 1 gear higher than I was comfortable with for the whole loop and it certainly wasn’t easy. I managed to knock 22 seconds off my best.
