Last weekend I took another stab at the Sugarloaf Mountain climb up to Switzerland Trail. It's a gruelling 8% grade (with most of the last 2 miles around 10%) that rises nearly 1900 feet. The last time I rode it (pictured) I finished the climb with the slowest recorded time on Strava (stopping for these photos didn't help). Last weekend, I managed to shave 40 minutes off my time! It's super inspiring to live in such a prolific playground, surrounded by so many hard working humans. Progress is fun.
