I've just completed my 1st Century & now I'm wondering if I have enough to tackle something like Mt Greylock. Any thoughts? Thanks

I've been riding for years. And there are no mountains of hills in Mass that even phase me. I'm sure you can tackle Greylock.

Greylock is not too bad but a nice challenge. I did it for the first time a coule of years back - it's just a matter of going for it and gritting your teeth. There's a steep bit wiht a couple of switchbacks on the way up and after about halfway it gets a little bit easier and you can pick the speed up on your way to the top. It's about 3500 high but I don't know how much actual elevation gain.

Don't forget it's a blast to come down the other side!!

Hope this Helps
