Paris Mountain Climb Junior Challenge

  Stats:  Route 72.6 miles 4:07 ride time 6234 feet elevation gain  17.6 miles average speed  Paris mountain climb: 13:15 (2.2 miles, 9.9mph,1580 elevation gain) Sunday was an exciting group ride. Not only was it the final ride of the 2-month Greenville Winter Bike League  but it was also the 2nd annual Junior Challenge. At the end of the 72 mile ride, junior riders (up to 18 years old) would battle it up the 2.2 mile Paris Mountain climb to win a prize. There was a payout of $1650, a Woodward GFB3 Single Speed bike (for the male and female junior winner) and a custom made trophy made from a piece of Paris Mountain (made by AJ). The ride was supposed to be on Saturday but it got rained out. Typically, Rocket Revolution have their group ride on Sunday but the GVL WBL ride was moved to Sunday. We have so many amazing cycling groups in our area. So many rides to choose from!  I started the morning with an easy 2 mile run. I timed it perfectly so that I would be back at my place around 9:
