Too weird- when I got up to the junction on Tuesday, there was a guy there, wearing jeans, no shirt, and his ride - an old single speed Schwinn cruiser style bike with a horribly uncomfortable looking saddle (nose pointed up at about 20 degrees). To top it off - he was smoking a cigarette! The bike had to be at least 40 years old, coaster-style brakes and all. Descending must be kind of interesting.
That guy must be in some kind of shape to push that beast up that hill, though (I lifted the bike - at least 30 pounds, with flat-land gearing). He did say he was stopping for a breather every mile or so.
