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.
