Iowa Hill

This was a good early-season ride. Fairly short and flat with the exception of one very steep hill. Going back later in the season to see if that hill is as steep as we remember. I’m guessing it is.

Update: Yep, it is as steep. In fact, I think it is a little steeper. The flattest spot is 13%. It hits 17% and 18% in a few spots with plenty of 15% and 16%. I ended up walking it (again) and Cole damn near passed out at the top (again). Thinking about trying the route in reverse or scratching it from the list of next year’s training rides. As an indication of this ride’s steepness, there are actually¬†4 riders on the slope. You can only see two.

Why yes, it is as bad as it looks
