All the 1st time tourist mistakes in Denali NP

Starting a bike ride on 2 pieces of toast and a cup of coffee at 10am in mid-80s weather starting with a 10% grade climb was my introduction to riding the Denali Park Road. You'd think I'd be smarter about this. Ha ha it took me 1.5 hours to ride 6 miles. I'd paid for a seat on the 1pm shuttle to the Eielson visitors center at MP 66, and it cost $34 so I didn't want to miss it. So I turned around at 11:30am and took exactly 20 minutes to get back. That's because 10% grades in your favor are the best things ever. I'm taking the bike on the bus out and I will ask the driver to let me at Savage River CG MP15. My plan is to ride back to the park entrance.
