The New Ride Home

My old ride home was great, straight down the GWT to my country castle.  I enjoyed two years of that ride, in and out of DSM a few times a day.  My NEW ride home from down town includes riding up the MacRae park hill.  Many of my friends were all like “blah blah big hills blah blah.”

I love that hill, and about half way up it tonight I thought to myself, “self, this hill ain’t shit,” and then I hit the part where the grade goes straight up (those of you who ride this “loop” on the regular know what I am talking about).  The hill had its say and I had to actually stand up and do a little work.  Then I decided that one wasn’t enough and went around for another pass.  Second time was even better.  I forsee this new commute being a great time, especially with a few laps around the park thrown in for good measure. 

Me+MacRae Park=true love.  If only it was gravel.
