Was only supposed to be 75-ish... but we found some good hills, to race up and down on. My buddy with the ( "full" carbon) Madone 5.1 & me with my *fast* (steel) bike . ( Sorry, I only have pics of the boring sections. Hard to take pics when going 4 or 50 mph... My camera died with 20 to go ... :x )

Max: 48.3
Avg: 19.8
Odo: 97
Tm: 5

Doing it again Sun ! :D ( Gotta get my miles up ... my stats are embarasing on http://ridenet.net/riding. )
Bend the knees, watch the trees, 5$ please.

it does not look boring.. it looks quite nice. :thumbsup:

although it looks flat.. much of our area you would be hard pressed to find a mile section of road that flat. :D

Most of it is def. flat and borring... Left from Franklin county ( capital city ), through Union co. ( flat ) over to Logan co. ( kinda hilly... theres even a ski "resort" http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1445458350100.55050.1642383567&l=6e7e92ae3d&type=1
called a mountain. All in Ohio. )

You have to "look" for hills around here...

I have not been down ( with a bicycle ) to Athens, Ohio. I guess that where all the "hills" are. There is a charity ride called Peletonia, that starts in columbus and works its way down there, ( 60mi. of flat then 30mi. of hills, easy b-path 20. ) and back up the next day... Omly reason I havent do it yet is because the registration proccess is like buying a used car... :thumbdown:
