MFFGRE my first fixed gear ride ever

Rode one of our regular climbing routes yesterday fixie. About 36 miles, probably 2500ft of climbing with 1300ft in the bank after the first 10 miles. It’s a rugged start.

Climbing and motoring the flats was great. Descending was interesting. I would regularly see sustained cadence of 140RPM. Hang on tight and move those legs. That does wear on you a bit after a few hours straight.

I’ll definitely race fixed at Crank the Kanc, and almost certainly do the same at the Wash practice ride.
