Got home from Boone, North Carolina Monday at 3am - 1145 KMS by truck and trailer each way - it was AWESOME - we rode a tonne - climbed just shy of 30,000 ft in 5 days - one climb was 5 kms long at an avg grade of 8.5% - it is pretty crazy - one small little hill we climbed was 860m long with 420 ft of vertical - that's an avg of 14.4% - that was a WALL!!!! We hit ramps of 28% and 26% - never seen that before. Our cabins were on top of Snaggy Mountain - the road up to our cabins was 1.7 kms long at an avg grade of 8.6% - we had to ride that everyday at the end of the ride to get to our cabins - we were all shelled each day. The scenery was pretty outstanding as you can imagine - very lush, very green and the roads were in great shape.
This will be an annual trip - stay tuned for 2012 details.

Big thanks to Fraser for taking the lead on all the arrangements for the Boone, NC cycling adventure. Excellent time. Thanks to Gears for the trailer and Kerri for his car. Have not been on my bike for four days, and my legs are still sore!
