OLH in five weeks (four, really)
Old La Honda (OLH) is one of the more infamous climbs in the San Francisco bay area. It's a 3.4 mile climb averaging an 8% grade. If you had told me five weeks ago, when I got back on the bike and struggled up Crystal Springs (and could barely make it to Woodside), that I'd be climbing OLH in July, I would've thought you were crazy! Well, I did it. The 29 sure helped. It took me 38 minutes (slower than slow), but I did it!!! And then we climbed West Old La Honda. If I can do that, I can do anything in NY!!!
