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.

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