    Sweet, sweet King of the Mountain, the glory is mine!

    And it's not a segment where I'm the only rider either! Woo hoo!

    Admittedly, it's a pretty weak mountain, as mountains go.

    Congrats on doing what you may not have been able to accomplish in the past, really. I do mean that with all sincerity however...

    400' and mountain in the same sentence?

    400' nothing, that segment is only 55 feet! At least it was uphill.

    Most of the 400' is on my street and I'm nowhere near the top of the skinny guy list on that one.

    Hmm, have to say being #1 on a board with 40 riders is quite a feat. Especially knowing #23 (MC) is a hard core time trialist up GMR every Tues.

    It's a greenway trail, with some street crossings that can be tedious. Magohn would be very disappointed. I will say there's 3 lanes - two for bikes, one for walkers but it wasn't crowded today AND somebody else had the light green for me each time I got there.

    Just don't tell MC it's a segment - I don't want to get blasted off it just yet.
