Now that's the part I would enjoy ... all downhill.


Here's the start of my downhill from the campground at 5000 feet, heading back on Memorial Day:

Wow! You had me leaning in my chair.-) Less than five minutes going down, how long did it take you to ride up the hill?

Those hairpin turn signs would make me seriously nervous, and I doubt that I would be cheering at 36 mph! Still, it looks like a lot of fun if you don't die...

I really didn't time it, but I rode up it early in Saturday's ride; the summit's only about 5 miles north of the first campground I stayed at, so I was fresh. The last mile to the top is close to 10% average grade, and the inside of those 15mph switchbacks are about 15%, so I was in my very lowest gear, spinning up at 3-4 mph there.

It was pretty much all downhill for 30 miles from 5000' to 400' in Lakeside, with a moderate headwind. There's a few short uphills that only amount to 300' total climbing in that stretch. Last September, I did the same stretch with a strong, hot, Santa Ana tailwind blowing at up to 30 mph (110 F when I arrived in Lakeside), hit 49 mph in a straight stretch, and had to ride the brakes at times just to keep from going at some insane speed through the small town of Alpine.

Lots of climbing, not my favorite part of being on a bicycle. I have 38 more days before the Seattle to Portland event (STP), this will be my second time riding 200+ miles with 10,000 other riders. I will do it in two days like last year. I really enjoyed the ride, but most of all the July weather was divine from a Las Vegas point of view. It was 117 degrees the day before I left for the Northwest last year, and I see we have a 105 day in the forecast for this Fridays schedule ride. Stevo, maybe climbing slowly with a triple at that elevation would be a grand experience after all...

Have a safe time in the pedals.

I do enjoy downhills immensely more than climbing, but you've got to earn them, IMO. There's one other bike campsite on the beach here at San Elijo, and the rest are inland in our mountains. Campo, Portrero, Jacumba, and the true "sky island" up at the top of Palomar mountain. The beach campground is crowded and noisy, but I head there on really hot weekends. Not really a true camping experience, though...Memorial Day, the day I shot that downhill video, I was eating breakfast, having the whole picnic area to myself, when I noticed something kind of big moving out of the corner of my eye, turned, and it was a bobcat sauntering by from behind me, maybe 20 feet to my right. It stopped for a moment, gave me this "yeah, so, whatever" look while twitching its tail, then strolled off into the trees. I love those encounters with nature.

In the past, I've done trips along Highway 89 in Northern California and routes in the Sierra. If you ever get a chance to ride through Lassen National Park, it's fantastic. The road climbs up to a 8512 ft. summit, but it's never more than a 6% grade, and traffic is generally light and courteous (35 mph speed limit, no trucks) Highway 49 up over Yuba Pass, going up the North Fork of the Yuba River gorge, is also wonderful.

From the image you posted I think you have "testrepo" instead of "test" for the component part of the entry. The sources.list entry for the testrepo should be as shown

Thanks, Kent - that was indeed the problem. Now I've made a lot of changes in the last 16 hours, but I'm fairly certain I didn't write or copy that entry. The CR entries were already in Synaptic, which would mean that sources.list on installation is wrong.

A quick check in a live session confirms that the CR test entry in sources.list.d is wrong.

I just checked the sources in M11.9.90, it is wrong.

In Jerry3904's beta1 summary thread, these were the changes I recommended: viewtopic.php?p=318451#p318451
