No-Key HillClimb:
Week X - Old La Honda Road (E) ; 06 Dec 1997


Results will be posted after the climb!


The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

(ode to Mark Anderson)

Not on a switchback
Not with a heart attack
Not on a hot day
Not with a breakaway
It will not beat you here or there.
It will not beat you anywhere.
