Now that's what I was expecting :-)
Thanks Russell! I just wrote up a blog with some annotated pics here: http://toonecycling.wordpress.com/2012/03/17/shades-mountain-and-red-mountain-climbing/
Thanks for the link, I'll check it out. Doing one of your routes on Thursday I gained a new respect for what you do daily. It's totally different than riding out in the country. Constant braking, shifting and turning are all more strain on my hands when doing these in town rides than I ever imagined they would be.
Fine - you can have Big Momma! She's a brick house anyways... ;) You should ride a route in the shape of the letters KOM all over the Birmingham metro.
@Russell - thanks! @Boris - hilarious!
you are a machine Brian!!!
