1900 FT CLIMBING
Our gang got together after work hours to ride a fast one to Portville and around, crossing slightly into PA and back up.
On way back to Portville, we took the a nice gradual climb known as Lillibridge Road. For all the feminine sweetness contained in its name, this one becomes a bitch towards the end when the road is unpaved for a half mile or so.
But we could take that just to get to the top, where the views of Haskell flats and Lake View Terrace were gorgeous.
The custom among riders here is to bring beers along on the bikes, get to the top of Lillibridge and chug a few down.
The merry descent on the steep downhill that follows is always a fun thing to experience.
Just keep tabs on the brakes though!
