So I'm getting ready for a bike trip to France (leave this Friday 6/16/06) and figure that my riding buddy and I should get some extra climbing in, so off we go, doing hill repeats of Bear Mountain.

It's about 4.3 miles, up, from the parking lot.

But to get there, we had to drive (short on time), from Manhattan, bike on roof:

And now we start, climbing. Note the pitch in the road:

My buddy Jack, doing his best impression of Jack, climbing a mountain:

Me, spinning:

Both of us, still climbing:

What's that beyond the top tube? Is that the Manhattan skyline that I see? Why yes, yes it is:

So we take a breather and my legs look freaky:

And then we decide to go down. Got this at ~32mph:

At the bottom, after 4 repeats. Just a little helmet hair :p

After an effort like that, happy hour is in order :D

And the next day to relax, my gf and I had a picnic in Central Park w/ a few friends:

Great day to ride. Great weather too.

I'll be riding the Pyrenees all next week. Hopefully I'll be able to grab some good pics when I'm not huffing and puffing up the hills.
