I got out on the bike for a solo training ride this afternoon. I started by heading up 7 Mile hill. It's a pretty tough climb and only one mile from the start, so you're not really warmed up yet when you hit it. But you are certainly warm by the top of the hill. I then rode north on Blakely to Kies. East on Kies to Meyers Lake Rd and then south to 9 Mile. That took me back to Blakely and then back down 7 Mile hill. It's a whole lot more fun going down and about 30 MPH faster. In all it was a 15 mile loop in about an hour. Lots of hill climbing which is really good at this point in the season.
In other news, Jake's Music Festival this past Saturday was a big success. We had more people in attendance, more sponsorship money and more donations than ever before. If you'd like to see some photos from the event click here.
