Clearly, you either found a snowbank, or your ass with both hands.

Close!

Next time i go out that way i'll be sure to bring my camera. But i hit 30 MPH going down it without pedaling! It was AMAZING.

These hills, mind you, were easy enough that i was in my big ring the whole time. Now, thats no small feat, me being me with my skinnyness/overweightness (contradiction, i know, but its true). and it only being my 10th real ride in about 2 years (last 3 weeks consisting of the other 9 rides) and my first one of almost 20 miles (about 19 total).

So yeah...i almost fell of my bike when i saw the hill. It was that shocking.
