Peaks, valleys, curves and crests: why I’m happy with my 34/26

No, this post is not about body image. 34/26 is the easiest gear on my cyclocross bike, and I was happy have it this past weekend. La Crosse has really GREAT HILLS!

I was in La Crosse with my family for the State High School Track & Field Meet. My husband runs a pole vault club and coaches athletes from all over Wisconsin and Illinois. I watched some of the meet, but I also went on two great hilly bike rides (thank you Grandma Vicki!). I included links to the routes on mapmyride.com below. I highly recommend the riding in the La Crosse area!
