Anyone Up For A Hill-Climb?
This Weekend we will be heading out to the ,west Texas, Davis Mountains to ride in the Cyclefest Tour and Hill-climb. We will be leaving on Thursday to "acclimate" ourselves to the elevation (Fort Davis, Texas Elevation — 4,892 ft). The tour on Saturday will be 75 miles long and there will be three good climbs. The max elevation on the tour is about 6300 ft. While not Colorado it is still a great ride to help your training. I have done this tour twice but this will be only my second year riding the hillclimb on Sunday. We will be staying at the Davis Mountains State Park . We will be camping out and enjoying the wonderfully mild weather. This ride is perhaps the most beautiful and challenging in all of Texas.
