Dee’s Bicycle Trip day#30 part 2

I can pedal up a 6% grade all day, but I can only last about 10minutes on a 8% grade, and about 10 seconds on a 10% grade, and most of the Climb today was 8, 10, and even some 14% grade so of the 20 miles of climbing I walked 8 miles of it. I walk pushing my bike up these steep grades at a speed of 2.5 mph so the 8 miles that I walked took a little over 3 hours, which is why it took 11 hours to complete the 66 miles

    I have a new visual in my mind for the word endurance. May you be refreshed tonight as you sleep. Praying for you all.

    Wow! I didn’t think a general purpose highway could be so steep! I’ve seen the 6% grades many times, but the 8% and 10% and greater, just can’t imagine the strain on the body…heart, lungs and muscles. I will now call you the man of steel.
