Rode up the Manayunk Wall today...Cheezhead

... as part of a 55 mile hill ride today, and damn! I have to give mad props to the pros who ride up this thing 10 times in a 150+ mile race! It didn't start out too bad, I was able to hold 12-13 mph for the first part, then came the writing on the road "Who's gonna mothaf***in' STEP UP?", a slight left turn, and it gets STEEP! Dropped my speed down to 8 mph almost instantly and I was left gasping for air at the top! I can't wait to do it again! (yes, I love pain :)
the friday before the pro race there is a tt up the wallishmael

I did it for the first time this year and it's really well organized and a lot of fun. Gave me a pounding headache for a couple of minutes, I love the pain too,
Pain is weakness leaving the body...right??? NMbiknben
