300 miles of hills, mountains, rain and chill. But at least is was windy. Got more (fat free) bugs that way.
Sounds um, like a great time. Where'd you ride? nmSpinchick

We had some friends that are doing a 2 week tour from DC to the Finger Lakes (hopefully not just the middle lake)and back. We rode with them for the first day & half their second day. Then we turned around and rode home.

1) Saturday started by raining.
2) Then it got cold-real cold and stayed cold.
3) Then the winds started howling-they didn't stop until late this afternoon.
4) Then we started climbing-that didn't stop till late this afternoon.

We overnighted in Chambersburg PA. an oderous town but at least it was buggy.

I'm cooked although I hope to recover by Wednesday or so.
so how was the ride?cyclopathic

Where/why does Crista find those climbs?MB1

They had a bit of problem with their bike on Saturday so they took a shortcut (probably less hills-more winds). Got it fixed by Sunday am. They last we saw of them they were all bundled up (so were we) and heading off into more climbing (so were we), more winds (so were we) and seemed to be having a good time (so were we???).

I think they are going to have a cold ride. But the trees were already looking great. We will probably go meet them in Greencastle Friday after next and ride back with them on Saturday. Other than that no plans for our next rides.

One thing I promised myself today NO MORE WIND!!!!!

I've just finished designing a century which scores 13,800' of climbing over 104mi, with extra 1,000'/7mi climb option.

the best part is there're a lot of flat sections, and though hill avg grade rarely hit 10%, there're 20-25% roller coaster portions. No dirt roads, bad pavement kept to minimum and reserved mostly to uphills. As usual the best climbs come on last 8mi stretch.

I have sucked Chuck and Crista in riding it though it won't happen before spring when we have enough daylight. I seriously doubt I can do it under 9hr, with 10-12hr being more likely.

I am looking forward to Sat ride which should go through Catoctin mnt park views second to none if Camp David is vacant.
