I don my bicycling shorts and a T-shirt after breakfast. Since the morning is cool I wear fingered gloves. My ride today will be 35 miles. I ride it often and know it well. About 30 miles out there is a short steep hill just beyond an unnamed creek. It has a sharp right turn at the top and it always slows me to a crawl. No matter how strong I feel, no matter how hard I try, I can never ride fast enough to break free.

picks it’s way through the feedlot
