28 Aug / Pikes Peak training ride the Springs

Had a nice ride to the summit of Pikes Peak (14,114ft, 4302m) from my parents house. When someone told me the road was open to the top I took a shot at it immediately- but their beta that the road averages 4.5% grade was waaaay off. My Garmin Edge 810 was reading most of the upper road at +9% grade. Fun ride- but could be even better with a compact chainring- at least judging from the all the dried sweat drops on my handlebars…
