I have spent way too many hours looking up this ride and freaking myself out. The last straw was getting elevation maps from my ride last Sunday to compare to tomorrow’s ride. Here’s what I found:
The bottom one is last Sunday, the top is tomorrow. The horizontal axis covers the same number of miles. The difference between them is that bottom one goes from 200 Ft to 900 ft whereas tomorrow’s ride goes from 0 to 1300 ft. Total elevation gain is the same. However, the grade is much, much steeper. But I can do this. I can do this.
The ride with the wild turkeys had a 2+ mile climb at 4%. I don’t think this one is any worse although it may be longer.
Can you spell O-B-S-E-S-S-I-N-G??
I can do this, right?? Just.keep.pedaling.
I’m nervous but excited.
