    Quick breakdown on todays Bike Forums small group ride

    Met with a couple local guys today that I met from here and we pulled roughly about a 45 km ride. I am ashamed to say that I showed up with a full sized bike but I needed it to keep up as lets just say I have a few years on these guys.

    At any rate it was an awesome ride and one section of the ride was noteworthy. We climbed a disgustingly steep and long hill. My GPS dump shows the segment highlighted in green as a 13.4% gradient.

    Yes I came up the hill last but I got up it which is good enough for me.

    Pic of the bikes. My MASI Speciale is in the middle.

    And a pic of the course route and the dirty nasty hill we climbed.

    Thanks guys!

    Indeed you should feel guilty !...

    If you think you no longer need your Dahon Speed TT, I am willing to receive it !

    That's a Giant "escape" mini-velo. It's a friend's, and he's put a compact 50/34 on the front, and 12-23cassette on the rear.

    John-san,
    Thanks for posting the pic & breakdowns! VERY cool! Especially the graph w/the gradient's!
    The monster climb at 18km's just about did me in too! But it was great conquering it!

    It was great meeting up w/you & we'll have to get out again soon!
    I'm think'n tomorrow, for the quick 25km lunch course.

    Have a nice afternoon,
    Domo~

    I've got the Speed TT prepped and ready to roll. All we need is good weather and I'm in.
