This is the route of my bike ride today (The blue and pink dots are where I stopped for quick water breaks):
6.3 miles, which looks like a decent ride, right? Well, here is an illustration of the elevation I was working with:
Turns out it was an AWESOME ride! One of my goals this month was to get to the top of that freaking hill on my bike, and even though this morning when I set out I figured I'd go ride on campus, and maybe the neighborhood directly east of it, I decided to take on the hill. I've got to admit, I feel pretty accomplished. It's only 305 feet of elevation gain, but it felt like a monster! What a great ride!
