Right, but now I've got the uphill direction. And the switchback right at the Lee Highway/66 exchange is unfriendly.
We'll see - part of it is that I don't do it enough (yet.)
MDS - thanks for the recommendation. I'm a bit smaller in all three dimensions - 5'8"/180, so I don't know how much that changes things. I think for a while I'm going to struggle with the Trek and see how much I do it. If it grows into a regular thing, I'm going to reward myself and get a new bike and keep the trek to haul the little one on the bike seat.
Ah well - no more delaying. Up the hill I go.
Love that switchback, get's the heart pumping. No fun going downhill on it though.
How'd the ride home go, get a little perspiration going?
