I've two guys at work, one half my age another quite a bit younger than me, they are very good
cyclist, they know that I ride around on errands at lunch time to get some riding in, so they brought
their bikes to work and rode at noon also, I rode for a short time with them, until they went to
this mountain, they normally don't ride around work, so they found this mountain to zip up and
travel along the top to drop back down into town, about 13 miles.
Well as I said, I tried to follow but knew I'd not be able to follow, the youngest one has a nice
Giant bike and the other fellow has a very light Felt bike, mine is a modest 30 year old Schwinn
Super le tour, not near as light nor does it have the gearing that they have, no way can I climb
that road! But now, each day I ride a little further up the hill, it's still barely up there and I get
so exhausted and winded from just doing that, but I hope by summers end that I can get about
half way up, today I took a ride, had to go into work on an emergency call so took the op to take
a ride after that was settled. BEAUTIFUL day, rode around the circuit, up the hill part way
and then did the circuit again and up the hill a second time, which was a little easier this time.
BUT, it's a very tough climb!
So say a little prayer for me
their route is up East Ave to Watercure Hill Road and cross over to Latta Brook Road and back down to Sullivan Street in Elmira NY
