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