68 rpm 115 rpm 4465 ft  
Nutrition: 70oz. of water, 64oz. of Accelerade, 1 - PB&J sandwich, 1 - Gu Gel Pack.
Note: A modified and extented version of the Westwood Park Century: map  Once I map this ride I'll update this entry.

Although the average speed was a bit disappointing, overall I was very happy with this ride.  I extended the distance, I fought the wind and refused to let its effects deter me and most importantly, I was able to climb up Fish Hill Road without stopping or having to walk as I have on two previous occasions in the past.  This thing is my monster that haunts me.  But not on this ride although it was close.  From what I saw on my bike computer I'd say it averages about 14% with a short section that's 20% just to try to kill you.  This made the entire ride worth it, particularly being I had already been riding hills for 2 hours when I got to this one.
