|ten of us rode this one together. our friend E (not Wonderdog, alas) took this shot. it's at around 20 miles into the ride, the first of two actual hills. the rest were lumpy rollers. this one had people groveling 39/25, few walking. at the top of this one was SAG 1, in a church gravel parking lot.
last year i dropped my chain at the bottom of this climb. comments heard from the passing pack included, "what, are you putting on more gears already?"
you can see the road going up through the trees. farther down the road, you can see the majority of the road traveling up the hill. it gets steeper past the solid treeline, and the road goes to garbage.

|with the best of intentions, i slowed on the interstate to take this pic of the approaching town exit sign. it didn't turn out so well. i am happy to report that we didn't stop on either drive up or back in the quaint one-horse town of Bucksnort, Tennessee.|
