So is he going to run up while you ride?

That's the plan. Hard to believe that won't get a few competitive juices flowing. Don't know what his plan is, but I'm aiming for a spot in the top two.

Past times on hills suggest that, given the grade on Ascutney, we'll have similar times, going around 15 minutes per mile. Steeper grades and I have the edge; less steep grades Peter has the edge.

Peter says it levels some at the top which means I'll need to have a good lead before then :-)

Will he give you a ride back down?

There's a better way down. :-)

Without a hang glider?

Works better with one.

Ha! It levels at the top ... and then gets steep again.

Peter: Wednesday is looking good for this.
Ken: You're welcome to drive down and join us for this sufferfest.

I'd vote for going in the morning, assuming it would be a little cooler than the afternoon.

I could run it. When I rode it I burned up my brakes on the way back down. And roller skiing up — that was definitely a hike back down.

Peter: How about I get to your house by 9:00, which should get us to the base of Ascutney by 10:30?
Ken: let us know whether to expect you there.

Oops, won't work for me. Got a 5K race tonight and track work 6:30 Wed morning. Sorry to miss it.

That’s fine. Or we could meet at the commuter parking lot by exit 24 and save you coming over here a couple of times. How about we meet there at 9?

That works!

The race starts in less than an hour. So exciting. I wish we had live coverage! (And I don't think I'm going to bet on Phil.)

Hey, last time I went to the track you could buy a ticket that paid off if your horse finished in the top two. Such a ticket on Phil today would have been a winning bet!
