With a tip of the cap to Wayne Sulak at T@H for bringing this to my attention, here’s a link to a great account hosted on Bilenky Cycle Works Blog of the Rapha Gentleman’s Race near Litchfield, CT: a 120-mile unsanctioned, unmarshaled race with nearly 11,000ft of climbing.
Slow and steady… it’s going to plateau soon. A first person account by Jed Kornbluh
I don’t want to steal anything from the article so let me just encourage anyone who likes a well-written account of an epic cycling adventure to spend a few minutes reading Jeb’s 2,600 word report.
For anyone who hasn’t figured out why Jeb’s name sounds familiar, Jeb is the son of our dear friends and owners of Tandems East in Pittsgrove, New Jersey: Mel & Barbara Kornbluh. As you can imagine, Jeb grew up cycling and he’s apparently also got the same flair for writing as his mother who is a regular contributor to various publications.
