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.
