    Had no business doing it, but proved a Clyde can do a climbing ride

    54 tomorrow, 210 pounds hoping for the should be 180 at some time. My village is apparently missing its idiot, since he rode his bicycle away to Mount Hood...

    Proved a fat boy can do it! 71 miles and 8000 feet of climbing, and actually pulled it off. Now, not to say it was fast (left that to the skinny folks), but it is possible to overcome a hill and still be a Clyde!

    Three toughest climbs I've ever done, in one day. A tremendous ride, great vistas of Mt Baker and Mt Hood, some exhilarating cruising with the Cascades providing a backdrop.

    But most important, I learned that if I'm patient, I can get over that hill. And if I fail, well, there's tomorrow...
