Pretty cool. I like that, reel the dude back in, take the rough line and still beat him to the stopsign.
OK, now forget about the talking but hold the cam in one hand.
Nice climbing - my Garmin weekend elevation graph looks like a "flatliner" compared to yours
P.S. how do you tackle a grade like that. Ive attempted similar and my front wheel starts to lift. Do you stand? Do you slow to as slow as you can to save your legs? What are your techniques?

Last July, when I climbed this hill for the first time, I was passed near the top in almost the same spot. I vowed I wouldn't let that happen again
By the way, on the first 8%-11% climb of the ride, I was talking to another female cyclist who was waiting at the same traffic light at the bottom of the hill. We talked almost all the way up this 1/2 mile climb. The subject of weight loss came up, and she told me I would "fly up" the hill when I reach my weight loss goal. I said I couldn't wait to see what it feels like. Then she said "you're a strong climber". I had a big sheot eatin' grin on my face for the rest of that climb Luckily I have that on video so I can get a good laugh whenever I want
By the way, everyone's bike I was able to get a close look at today had a triple on it.
That was great when you beat that guy to the stop sign I think the snow/ice storm here at home will keep me off the hills today. I do like watching your sunshine and clear roads
I'm impressed. Is there nothin you can't do. Did I say I'm impressed? You go girl. Great vid!
The crank is a mtn crank with the 44T swapped out for a 48T "trekking" chainring.
i.e. 64/104mm bolt-circles.
I built the bike on a Soma DoubleCross frame with dropped bars and road brifters.
Wow,you guys are "Low Riders". My climber has a 53/39-12/25.
Don't believe everything you think.
