David from Austin, describing me in such an awesome way that I must share it. I must say that he’s a bit hard on himself, though. We had the advantage of knowing what that climb entails, where to pace ourselves and quite frankly, how long it lasts. I used that to MY SUPREME SOUL CRUSHING ADVANTAGE! haha.
Anyway, the quote comes from a piece DandyLion wrote (hey, he sets ‘em up, I knock ‘em down) about a ride Dkcholo and I recently took him on. A standard training ride for us Noo Yawkers - GWB to Piermont via River Road. It was a lovely fall day, and a great day for riding. Go read his writeup of his Texanite impressions of it.
It’s easy to forgot how great these routes are when you do them so often. Nice to see an outsiders perspective.
That armwarmer has to go! Dumb elastic.
