DH and I were in the mountains of north Georgia this past weekend for a bike ride. Not just any bike ride but the 20th anniversary of the SixGap/Three Gap ride in Dahlonega, Georgia.
If you are wondering about this ride let me tell you that the highest climb for DH was 3,500 feet in elevation. The toughest climb, Hogpen Gap, tested even the strongest riders, averaging a 7% grade for seven miles, with sections as steep as 15%. Just to give you guys an idea what an accomplishment DH achieved this past Sunday. The first riders of the century ride came in at a time of 5 hr 9min and 16 secs. DH finished his first mountain ride at a time of 7 hr and 35 min. I am very proud of John. When he finished the race he just collapsed and said it was the toughest thing he has done in his lifetime. .
While we were in the mountains we took some time to enjoy the Fall activities. DH and I went on a corn maze and went to the Apple House. John was unsure about the maze but he went along with my idea. In the end it was one tough maze but we made it through after 1.5 hours.
