1st annual Tour de Pepper

Hot, humid, and I don't know how it is possible, but uphill all the way.

Okay maybe an exaggeration but still some very killer hills on this ride. The heat and humidity didn't help much. Went 50 miles before calling it quits but to those who finished way to go.

I'll be doing this next year just to conquer those darn hills.

Send a review to www.bicycle-stuff.com- he'll post it on his website.

Some people like hills, so some ride organizers go looking for all the hills they can find to make a "good" ride. Some of us don't like hills, though.

Hills hills and more hills baby! Flat are boring, hills and wind create character. Give me the hills anytime!

Did I mention I like hills?......HA!

I think it was a good ride all in all. There were a few things that could have been done better.
The people at the rest stops should have been better informed as to how far from the start and to the finish they were. Several rest stops ran out of ice and sport drink.

I will 90% go back next year.
