BSG - Again








I did the Blood Sweat and Gears bike ride last Sat. Oh man was that hard. This is my 2nd year doing this ride and it was still as hard as last year. The ride is 102 miles and advertises 13,000 feet of climbing. Yes, 13,000 feet. The hardest section is called Snake Mountain, you basically grind up this gap until you get to this crazy section at the top of the climb where the grade is 18-20%.

I made it in one piece and improved from last years time. This year I did it in 6:24, last year it was 6:41. In terms of where I placed. This year I was 284 out of 633 riders and last year it was 369/672.

All in all is was a great day. That is truly God's country up there, so beautiful and green.

Peace,
Rob
