after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

18%



[gotta love climbing in so-cal, purdy]

the wednesday climbingfest turned into a brutal 18% slugfest. greg and i headed out via a shortcut to the valley, which means it was straight up, like all of our shortcuts. we than made our way to chevy chase and continued up to the top, where the private girls academy is [see picture]. then out to foothill, down [more like up] to sunland and back across the valley to barham and to the team headquarters in the hollywood hills. all in all about 3500ft of climbing at an average gradient of 12%, with at least 2000' at 16%+.
