Torque

Posted by on December 19, 2012

Just a quick ride out on the trail, down to Phoenix Bikes via W&OD and back via as much of the 4 Mile Run trail that I can find.

Just that wicked hill at the Glencarlyn Park Sidepath did me in. It had rained pretty hard the night before, and was foggy and overcast, so the roads were wet in some parts. The sidepath was damp, and steep. So going up I kicked it into the bitch ring and started stamping on the pedals, only to have my power output exceed the traction of my tires. That is, they kept slipping and I was going nowhere… So for the first time I had to walk my bike up a hill. I felt so embarrassed.
