Middle of Mill Rd, East of Jewettville
I saw the hash for today was closer than usual and within my range for a bike ride. It was a perfect day for a bike ride too. Always on the lookout to make things more interesting, I saw I could make this into a Tron, but I knew it wouldn't be easy due to a steep ridge I would have to ride over on the way back.
After work, I got ready and wrote out my directions. My initial plan was to make my way back to Cole Rd and finish on a route I normally take, riding through Boston(NY). I rode to the hash without any trouble taking a route that was relatively flat. Getting to the intersection with the hash, I got my pictures without getting off my bike to preserve the Tron. I then started the return trip and made it back to Rt. 240 without trouble, but once I hit Behm Rd, the road tilted WAY up. I bet the grade was over 10% in places but I impressed myself by not having to get off and rest/walk...even if I was only going 4 MPH.
Finally getting up the ridge and making it to Cole Rd, I knew I was too tired to go the whole planned route, so I cut the route in half and made my way down the other side of the ridge to North Boston instead. It was fortunate I did that because I found a restaurant that I didn't know existed that I'll have to try at some point.
I made it home and found my wife made Pho (from scratch) for dinner.
The hash being at the intersection of Mill and Grover Roads, I'm issuing a Tale of Two challenge for Mill.
