    Bost: I am SO FAST!!!

    HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!
    I just got home from school and when I got to my door I looked at my computer and my time was 00:22:48!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    OMG With a 20lb backpack I shaved A THIRD off my time, I always try to get up the hill as fast as possible (with pack or no) but DAMM
    I was putting down so much tork that I broke one of my pedals and chipped flakes off both cleats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No Idea how I did it and I only had to take one big break at the start and two smaller ones to let the lactic acid bled out of my arms and legs!!!!!!

    I AM PUMPED I an Going to go try it again on my new road bike, one of the pedals on the MTB broke!!!!!
    If your not bleeding your not trying hard enough, now excuse me while I get my bike dirty.

    I just got back and I did the 1/2 mile 300+ foot climb in 4:39.
    That is good right? tell the truth...

    And MERTON yes 22min... BUT I take my time with a 25+ pound pack, baggy heavy cotton school attire on an under sized MTB, with a gunky un-cared for chain, and with 50psi off-road tires! I like to see any one who has only been serous about biking for 6-7 months do any better.

    But really, is a 1/2 mile 360-ish foot climb in 4:39 or 40 miles in 2:20:00 (both on a road bike) any good or not?

    That's about a 6.5mph average on a 13.6% grade (assuming your numbers are spot on). Pretty good, I'd say, you can do better though.
