SOTA With Wheels

What better way to take my new (to me) mountain bike out for its maiden voyage than to do a SOTA activation? I packed up the MTR3B, telescopic pole, and water and food for the morning, and set out for Middle Peak (W6/SC-024) in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. It’s about 5 miles to the summit via fire roads, and plenty of trails in the area provide options for the descent.

The activation went great with plenty of contacts, and I even kept myself upright on the bike the whole trip up and back. Looking forward to the next one…
