Mount Ashland Hillclimb

Hows about we go ride our mountain bikes up hill only for several hours? Ya? I’ve had better ideas, but I also know I’ve had much much worse.

Oof.

4800 feet of climbing. 18 miles. Almost all uphill. And I dont mean some nice little 3% grade, but we’re talking 8ish% on average, with some definite steeper slopes.

I wasnt super motivated, but I did want to do it just to see how much I could make myself suffer. But I did it. And I came in 2nd for all the mtn bike women, 1st for my category.

The 1st solidified my Oregon Bicycle Racing Assn, Best Allround Rider for Sport Women 19-39. Which I’m pretty happy about.
