On July 21st, My friend Alex Moore(on Left in photo) and I both rode in the Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb in Colorado Springs, CO. The ride was 20 KM with over 4800 ft of climbing. The view from the mountain peak was incredible (14,110 ft!) and made the insane gradients a little more bearable. The descent was one of my favorite parts because we went from 38 degrees (with ice on the ground) to 85 degree sunny weather in about 25 minutes!
I will definitely be going back in the future and I hope to do both the Bob Cook Memorial MT. Evans Hill Climb as well as Pikes Peak, which fall on the same weekend. I encourage anyone thinking about doing this climb to just DO IT, you will not regret it!
