This 60-mile out-and-back might just trick you into thinking you’re the strongest cyclist in the world. As the elevation profile suggests, it’s pretty much one long uphill on the way out and one long descent on the way back. It’s not a particularly steep hill—the climb’s average gain is less than 100 feet per mile—so it won’t whoop you on the way out, but it will make you feel like you’re flying on the descent.
