Over this past summer we attempted to ride from our house to the La Luz trailhead. The total elevation gain is 1,100 vertical feet in 11 miles and the last 2 miles has a gain of ~950 vertical feet. When we tried to do it before, we were besought with a headwind gusting at about 45-50 mph. This time we had a lovely tailwind that propelled us up and that same tailwind became a headwind alleviating the need for brakes on the descent. Here were the views as we got closer to the top.

Look at that New Mexico sky.
