Well, I finally completed the Black Canyon Little Pan Loop, after many failed attempts. It feels so good to have finally completed this ride and to be recorded on Strava as one of the finishers. I started out pretty strong but once I looped around to the return I was feeling pretty tired. Also, my feet were banging against those hard rocks time and again and it started to hurt. Anyway, finally completed my goal. Now, on to the next challenge.
