I couldn't resist buying one. I wish that UPS came a day earlier. It would have been fun to watch the altitude as I climbed Mt. Greylock, Massachusetts highest peak. It is 9.15 miles of all uphill from North Adams. Last year it took me an hour and nine minutes to climb it. This year, I took five minutes off!! The ride started at 95 degrees. By time I was about 1/2 way, it cooled down to 85. Then, it started to rain. At first when it started, I wasn't sure if it was my sweat or rain!! By time I was at the sign in the road that says "3 Mi to top", it was pouring. I bummed a trash bag from the AMC center on the top so I could make it down w/o freezing. At the top, the temp was 72, it dropped 23 degrees in an hour. Mt. Greylock is a fun and challenging ride, I would reccomend it to anone who is relativley close.
