I know I trained… err just rode more before RAGBRAI last year and 2010 than the years in between.
I feel like I easily made it up Mockingbird Hill last year.
I struggled, but made it up Potter’s Hill in 2010.
I made it out of Lehigh in 2012, but didn’t make the next hill after that.
I had to walk Twister Hill in 2011.
Again, my training in 2011 and 2012 was not very good. So I feel like I could have made those I couldn’t if I rode as much as I did before 2010 and last year.
So here is my question:
Wikipedia has a posting that Mockingbird Hill is the steepest ever on RAGBRAI. Is this true? I am having a hard time believing it steeper than Potter’s Hill.
