I didn't ride Blazing Saddles, but instead went to Greenfield, MA for the Deerfield Dirt Road Randonee on Saturday. 100 miles w/ 70 miles of unpaved road in the Pioneer Valley w/ 11,000 feet of climbing. Utterly gorgeous, yet also unbearably brutal. Had to tap out and DNF after 50 miles because getting lost between 15% grades was just an extra toll that my body couldn't pay.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to share in the good weather, either. Pretty damp and cool all day, which wasn't bad. Gave us a good reason to keep on pedaling and keep the sweat from cooling down.
