Upness With Aaron

upness stI had a cold, climby, pleasant ride with one of the Aarons from Upness.org today.  We climbed a bit over 4600′ in about 40 miles. These are ratios that I like.  You pack a lot of experience and challenge into a shorter period of time when the climbing is greater than 100′ per mile.  On track nicely to get set up for a fantastic spring and summer, I think.

The day turned out to be absolutely beautiful and wonderful testing conditions for some gear I was given to have a looky-see about recently.  I’ll have more on that in the future though when I get more diverse experience with the items.

The weather was fairly clear and in the higher 30′s to very low 40′s all day, but no rain, which is kinda cray this time of year.Processed with VSCOcam with m3 preset

The sun was casting some long shadows towards the end of our ride and all-told, it was a fantastic time on the bike.
