The last time I rode this hill (a cut through from 189 to 20), I swore I wasn't going to do it again. - that was 2 years ago. I suffered. Today, I didn't feel like riding the same old route, so I took St Hwy 539 on...that is a mother of a hill. I was standing for plenty of it and it never seemed to stop. Definitely a hill I should continue to attempt to conquer.
Anyway, beautiful day for a bike ride (not a run). Ended up going 31.6 miles - 1:54. Avg. 16.6 - top speed got to 41.7. Fun and enjoyed the sun with the sweat. Working on that biker's tan for sure.
