What is the one ride this year that 'Sticks Out' among the rest? I think the ride that sticks out in my mind in 2007 was a solo ride up 39,lil GMR to the Village then back the same way. I had never ridden up that direction before till I did the Bloat Ride. After doing a couple of forum rides on that rt., I decided to do it alone but return via EF and 39. The ride was 70'ish miles. I remember thinking EF and 39 were going to be all downhill. I was surprised. Who put uphills on the downhill? But I think the most punishing part of that ride was the unexpected winds on the roads I had underestimated.
Big GMR had been closed during construction that day. I was expecting to see other cyclist up there but only managed to see one other. It was a long isolated ride. Thought it would never end! I'm not really sure why, but this ride just stick in my head!
