Hills and chills

I had a hard time figuring out how to dress for today’s ride and erred on the side of being too warm. About 14 of us rolled out from the corner of Hwys 150 and 68 and headed north toward Madison. The route was a new one — it started like the typical Belew’s Creek ride, then headed east rather than west. Madison to Gold Hill felt like a long series of climbs. I threw in one minor surprise, a stretch of smooth dirt road, and dubbed the ride Gold Hill-Roubaix. It’s an incredible ride and well worth the trouble. Here’s the cue sheet:
