Chilly Hilly 2003

Rode the Chilly Hilly. Glorious day, with a lot of last-minute registrants. I wasn’t sure what kind of traffic to expect, and parked at work rather than near the ferry dock.

They had a lot of last-minute registrants, and the stops tended to be picked over by the time I got to them. One problem with a ride like this is you have a lot of people who haven’t been riding during the winter (present company included). A few of them are really dangerous on hills, coming to a near stop, then turning sideways. Trust me, there’s nothing worse than having to start from a stop on a 12 degree incline.
