hawk hill

yesterday, we rode 31.3 miles up hawk hill. it was hard but not nearly as hard as i thought it would be. the ride was beautiful and fun and i am so proud of K and i for actually going through with it! this was our first ride on our own and we totally rocked it.

the map here only shows the route from chrissy field and as pictured is about 20 miles, but we started from the center of SF and rode an additional 5 miles each way on the route.

the view was absolutely gorgeous and we could not have picked a better day to go. the mountain in the middle of this shot has a road carved out of it…this is the road that we took from the bridge. we basically rode from below sea level to a couple thousand feet of elevation. not too shabby for a lacey-brained weakling!

worst two things about the ride: 1) tourists on the bridge… tandem bikes UGH!!!; 2) the wind.

best two things about the ride: 1) the meal we ate afterwards. glorious, delectable carbs and salt! food always tastes amazing after a ride; 2) the moment in the above picture. we made it! holy shit, we actually made it!!! also, my arms look pretty buff which is nice. even if it is just the shadows. i’ll take it!
