I have pedaled 5 1/4 miles from Anderson Park Point to get to this long beautiful trail challenge. I deal with it often, but is not my friend. The crest is at Brownfield Road, the common end-point for this ride-route. ...but today I intend to go another 6 miles to Clayton and record it.

 Soon after I begin my ascent, I get passed!
That has never happened before, to me. I sometimes pass others. I like to claim my disadvantage is the heavy ride I pedal... 52 pounds of a steel bicycle from Target, and 12 pounds of tools, gear, parts and first aid in the bike trunk bag. ...and I'm old. ask any kid.  Some would say 'Ancient'.
