The forecast called for rain today and the weather did not disappoint. Luckily it held off until we got to Massanutten - the main climb of the day - and most of the way up the climb. Despite only being 1.8 miles, the climb still kicks your butt. It's all on gravel road (and not good, hard packed gravel either...) and kicks up to 11% grade in places. It's pretty hard, to say the least. On the way back we all got completely soaked through, which isn't that awesome when it's <40 degrees outside. Definitely glad to be finished with today's ride, to say the least. Glad to have done it, however (although you can almost always say that once its over...)
Just under 3 hours today.
