This was my first Hilly Hundred Weekend experience and my father’s second. This was something that he coaxed me into doing this year with him, and I reluctantly agreed. We were introduced to the Bloomington hills in the last 2 Hep rides in May, which was an eye opener. It also introduced me to my nemesis, Bean Blossom Hill. My first experience with BB hill consisted of a broken chain, the second included a thrown chain and a lot of walking… After 1600 miles of training this summer, my new bike from Bicycle Garage Indy, and with my dad coaching me along the way, I made it to the top of that d%$^ hill… (My new nemeses are now Mt. Tabor and Water Tower hill…) Thanks Dad, I love you, lets do this again next year!
