Went for a ride up a mountain pass with my brother the other day. What we found was a workout we hadn’t bargained for. The hill was long and steep and didn’t want to quit. When we finally crested we took a break.
On the return journey we noticed a sign at the top of said hill warning trucks of the 13% grade ahead. WOW! Now I have a taste for what Tour De France has to offer. That hill was tough.
Of course the best part of the ride was the nice 66 kph decent through twisting roads back down to our starting position…constantly riding the brakes to stay in control. Can’t wait to do that one again. What a rush!
