Clyde Ride Buddy Conquers a Mtn Climb!
BF'er TomBunn joined us for an assault on GMR today. We rode across some rollers for 9 miles then headed up the 8 mile 6% climb. This was Tom's first time making it to the shack and he did well. This 8 mile climb is where most normal people turn and head back on the mtn climb. Some of the sick puppies go on to the village for added fun! I'm not sure but I think we may have created a monster. He'll be back for more!
BF'ers on the ride. Mad_One (skinny guy) and Grrlyrida (pink skinny gurl and good climber) and Gina the Athena. Nice mellow ride on a cool dark day with a threat of rain! The plan was to complete the 8 mile climb and yes we did! Tom's first victory! Good job!
Gina rode up about 2 miles then thought she'd puke. I reminded her it was all about relaxing. SHe did then went on to complete the climb for a 7th time. We all did good, inlcuding me!Hehehe!
37 miles with about 3000 ft.
Mad_One and Gina heading up
She's so silly! Gina wants to make it clear that this was after a short break and in no way was she ahead of the others. She says the picture looks as if she's in the lead evnthough the others could have ealiy spanked her on the climb!
Grrlyrida...always so calm and cool on the climbs!
Beanz: Tom, you're kickin' but, look happy!
TomBunn's ATTACK..... ON THE SHACK!
