The headwinds on the West Side Highway this morning was intense. My legs are littered with scars from years and years of riding BMX bikes. Back roads. Keeping clear of 9W at all costs. Climbing into Rockland Lake I am really love my Macho Man. The climb into Rockland Lake is pretty fun. This is the top of one of my favorite climbs with gradients ranging from 8% - 27% Keeping it on them backroads! Tallman. I love you. Ran into this dude. Pleasant and painful surprise.
