So that's the Pain Cave they speak of.

So I finally decided to ride STeve up Snowbowl Road after work today. That was hard, and painful, and my legs are pretty fried. I kept asking myself why I thought this was a good idea, of which the answer was "To see if I can do it."

Of course, there's also the fact that I get to come back down the 7 miles of twisty-turny goodness.

My goal was to make it up to the lower parking lots in time to see the sunset, a goal that seemed to creep further and further away with every "I've gotta stop because I feel like I'm going to cough up blood."

Looking downhill.

But I did make it to the top, and more than that, I made it in time for the sunset, which in itself made every tortured turn of the cranks worth it:

The blast back down the hill, setting a new top speed of 44.9 miles an hour was just icing on the cake.

I'll do it again.
Mileage: 37
