First century of the season
Nothing spectacular. Not amazing climbing, or speed, or weather. Just your everyday rain, light wind, and ~6500' in elevation. (almost half of it contained in the middle 1/3 of the ride.)
7h 44m 45s
Redmond Ridge to Bainbridge Island and back via the Burke Gilman trail, to ride the Chilly Hilly.
33mi Chilly Hilly w/ 2700' climbing
Worst hills weren't part of Chilly Hilly:
- Marion Ave to 6th Ave coming off the ferry. Hors category pitch for .33mi immediately after a 20min cool-down on the ferry ride from the island.
- Novelty Hill. Sure I do this 2.25mi, 600' climb 4 days a week... but not after 96 miles.
You can check out videos from the ride at My Qik Video Page.
