After the long drop there are a bunch of false flats. These areas take a lot out of me if I try to hammer, so I just try to cruise to the lunch stop. The lunch is at a fire station miles from anything. Here, Vertical Bob is relaxing.
After lunch the long climb starts and continues up to mile 70. It is quiet and beautiful out there.
Here is a shot looking back from the top of that climb.
After that there are some smaller climbs and some fantastic scenery.
Truly a great ride, but a little harder than it looks on paper. The Wheelmen only charge $20 for the excellent support so it can't be beat, imho.
Oh, and I rode the Seven, so I have done the loop on 5 different bikes, I think.
