Up to the Blues (4/15/12): Great Blue

Ride: Davis-Blue Hills - Davis
Distance: 37.5 Miles
Difficulty: Moderate Hard

Coming up to the Trailside Museum and Entrance to the Reservation, I stopped at the top of the Hill on Blue Hill Ave - awaiting Brian and Mike.

Mike caught up first: "Those hills were some tough ones."

I felt a little bad to respond to him with: "We haven't done the BIG hill yet?"


Alas, this was true. The BIG hill - Great Blue Hill - is a 0.9 mile 300 foot climb from Blue Hill Ave to the weather observatory.

It was a perfect day for a ride and Mike, Brian and I took advantage of it.

We hit many parts of the city - Somerville, Cambridge, Back Bay, South End, Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester, Mattapan, Milton, Roslindale and Brookline

Despite Mike and Brian needing to walk most of Observatory Road, we had a great day.
