THANK YOU!

Now go find some hills and practice
Cecilanne, you are my hero. I'm doing the Vineride this weekend and there are some good hills that I'll be climbing (and climbing and climbing), so I'll be taking your advice to heart!!

So how did it go? As I recall from year's past, the climb up (and rocket down) Eola Hill is a bit of fun . . .

I did the 67-mile ride, and the big Eola Hill torture-fest is part of the 100 (near the end of the 32-mile loop that hooks back up with the 67).

Still, there are some hills on North Valley and Laughlin roads that were pretty hairy. I took my time, relaxed, paced myself... and had no problems. Even that bad steep mother quarter-mile before the turn onto Chehalem wasn't too bad. I like going downhill, but you gotta go up first.

Now, my boyfriend did the 100; he's part mountain goat, so he flew up Eola Hill and came into the rest area we were meeting at with a huge grin on his face.

Sorry, Haggis, for the threadjack!!
