So perhaps the secret to a good hillclimb is to squeeze out of work a few minutes early, ride like a possessed demon to the start line, grab a quick drink from your sister’s water bottle and then go like an even more possessed demon to the top. Yes, that’s what Gus did tonight. Impressive!
A little chill in the air today, but it was sunny! We had a great ride that took us over the border in to Connecticut.
Today’s weather was ideal for the trip up to Cummington. It was 61 degrees when we started our ride a little after 9 AM. It felt more like late September than the final day in July.

A perfect weather day called for some beautiful (but challenging) riding up to the Berkshire county town of Peru, which is the highest altitude municipality in Massachusetts at 2064′.
We had twelve riders tour the Hamptons and stop at Kosinski Farm. A large pothole ended the ride for two of our participants a bit early.
