From the GWB to BEAR MOUNTAIN and back.
Hills galore in 95 degree weather.
Close to quitting and questioning my sanity for the attempt because I did it all on my fixed.
I love that one gear with no freewheel.
On the serious side though. I think I pulled my hamstring from muscling that one gear up so many hills. Hoping it takes care of itself.

|I would probably not stay with it long.
It would go like this...
The boss said I had to haul that 100 pound bale up to the top of Mt.Rose, (4200 vertical in 15 miles) I told him where he could stick it. I'm not draggin' that around....
But after work, or on the weekend, I'll haul my 185 (with bike) pound @ss up and back and around. For Fun!
Yes, we are nuts, and blessed for it!
Hope your hammie heals up quick!

|I'm questioning your sanity too!!! :-)
What gear did you use? Considering the weather, I would have struggled in my 21t.

|I dont think I will ever do anything like that again. Although you never say never.
I am actually thinking up other schemes like this one.

|I've heard of such insanity. First time the guy told me he did it on his track bike w/o any brakes and with track gearing. I thought he BSed me.|
