It’s been awhile since we had some legit hills on the menu. With the leaves doing what they do I decided to take the bunch over to Lincoln. There is a super scenic stretch of road (one of my favorites) that runs south out of Lincoln. A good size group this morning. Must be why the pace felt faster. As a ride organizer I get a kick out of coming up with interesting routes. This one I call Triple Berg. Tackling Wedington Blacktop, 4 Corners & Hell’s Kitchen climbs. Can’t say enough about the scenery. 56 miles 2900 ft gain. The ride had a surprise ending…
Not sure what’s happened to the bunch lately. But the bicycles are in need of some love or WD-40.
The PRO police were handing out tickets left & right. Someone must have tipped them.
Gross misuse of a steer tube. On a Cervelo at that. 200 swiss francs. This bike is not new anymore…
I always get a kick out the variety of topics folks talk about on group rides.
First of the triple. Wedington Blacktop, 226 ft in .5 miles not bad but always forms a selection.
Like wild animals riders just threw their bicycles up against the wall. More tickets…Click here to know more about proper lean.
Loving the new indy packaging of CLIF’s hydration mix.
Canehill Rd. is great. Twisty turny and great views of the Ozarks.
State Champ having some fun with pinky & thumb.
More of why this is one of my favorites.
Then 4 Corners, 1 mile 300 ft gain. The descent is what this climb is all about.
Gerald D was logging some miles on the CX rig.
Get outside this weekend folks. It’s beautiful out. I hear old man winter is knocking at the door next week.
Shortly after 4 Corners is Hell’s Kitchen. About 1.3 miles 400 ft gain. You feel it pretty good on this one.
True top of HK is at the stop sign at the dead T.
Then we turned north into a gnarly headwind.
The surprise ending. About mile 50 on the Greenland hill I started to have a grumble from downunda. All the sudden it became an urgent situation. Big thanks to Highroller Cyclery for the hook up. Sorry for the…well umm…”don’t go in there for about 35 to 45 minutes.”
