Frank's Haleakalā Climb

Today was Stella's turn to provide SAG support and take photos. It was my turn to climb Haleakalā.

But how? Pacing was everything. Based on results of riders I know, I aimed at a time of 4:30, and calculated the pace I would need to hold. It seems I started off too fast up Baldwin, and was on pace for a 4 hr finish by the time I hit the slopes of Crater Rd after a 2 hour approach. -F.
