Today, I did get a skinny of my own. He was a 90 yo dude on an mtb, didn't know what was going on but I kicked the snot out of him anyways!
Hardly anybody out there today so I figured I'd tackle this hill that I've been eyeballin' for a couple of years. Never rode it cause it's out of the way of my usual course. That and it looks big!
...Today I cut my ride short then headed back early only to hit this monster at 20 miles in.
I had scoped it out before in my truck but only ever seen 2 other riders on it but they were zigzagging their way up. I went for it! I am happy to say I rode straight up but understand why they were ZZ'ing.
......And I was struggling to hold 4 mph at the top. It's only about a mile long but the further up you get, the steeper it becomes!. I tried to kick the snot out of it but didn't. Next time!
