Kudos to all you guys and gals that ride up mountains. Of course I knew it's harder but geez this was ridiculous. I rode with the same group I do pace line rides with and got dropped on every hill! It's a totally different skill set and fitness level. These were not mountains, just steep but short climbs and a bunch of them.
I'm currently looking for an anesthesiologist who can knock me out until my body recovers from the 52 mile butt whoopin I just took.
Way to go Mr. Beanz, Gina, Freighttraininguphil (and your camera), and all the rest of you. I'm going to tuck my tail and run back to the flat lands. Well for now anyway.
