Bike Porn Friday: Storytime!

Today's Bike Porn Friday is a narrative approximation of what it was like to participate ("compete" might be too strong a word) in the Rollapaluza Urban Hill Climb yesterday. A more considered report, possibly with pictures of Doug looking agonized, will follow next week or something. You should be able to find Doug's time sometime today by clicking on that link. It was undoubtedly slow.
