Ride up Mount Washington, sounds like a great idea...
|The Goal (at least as far as they let us go)|
Actually it sounded like a good challenge and something you just don't get to do everyday. The weather was brutally cold and windy but could have been so much worse. Take away the wind and it was a cloudless day with temps rising into the 20s, not bad.
|Typical winter conditions at the top (Wind a steady 55mph with a 24hour gust of 114mph)|
|I mentioned it to Barney and he was all over it!|
|The starters full of anticipation|
|Still doing good after the fun rolling flat part, time to head UP.|
|I climbed 2200' and all I got was this lousy view?|
|Still giving the thumbs up!|
I was hoping to make the top 50% given how many fatbiking animals there are out there, I didn't expect better. I managed to squeak into the top 25% with 16th place. Based on nothing I expected my time to be 1 hour. I came in at 1:01:59 I'll take it. Results
Cheers to the hours of grooming it must have taken to make this possible after the early melt we had this year.
