TOMRV, comin’ right up!

June 4, 2008

During an idle moment I satellite mapped this year’s TOMRV route. Yes, I rode it last year and Yes, I know that it’s hilly but last year’s ride was such a struggle for me that most of what I remember is the horror of the never-ending hills! I wasn’t equipped to handle the ride and, even worse, to handle shifting gears to navigate the hills. Even though I’m a more experienced rider and stronger than I was last year at this time, looking at the route gave me the willies! Here’s a picture of me early on. I’m NOT showing the one from Saturday night even after I got cleaned up.

I mentioned this to Larry and he thought we could ride the Rocket. Maybe.
