The "Bull Valley Beatdown"

The "Beatdown" Beat. Me. Down....

Mike cruising up Ridge Rd. on his Beltdrive 50x20 gearing

Already on the climb on Valley Hill Rd. This is the steepest climb of them all, pitching at over 20% towards the top.

Beginning Bull Valley Rd. Climb

Cherry Valley Rd.

A great view looking down at the climb on Valley Hill Rd. Easily hit over 40 mph on this downhill.

Met up with Mike Naughton again to ride the legendary "Bull Valley Beatdown" course. This is 5 miles from my house but I have never explored the climbs or riding in this area. Mike was on his single speed again and I can understand staying on top of the gear while riding a single speed or fixed gear bike.....but, this dude is STRONG!!! He beat me up every hill on the ride time after time with a 50x20 gear. I was able to stay in the 46t for a few climbs and had to drop down to the 34t on a few. This is the new Trans Iowa training course for me....just going to keep doing this loop with 4 great hills and plenty of rollers. 3 of the 4 big hills are over 18% grade and really take it out of your legs. Mike's Garmin said that we climbed about 1800 ft in 2 hours. My legs were already tired from the 62 miles on the fixed gear the day before, but doing this loop 3 times and logging another 50 miles today really got the legs feeling like some twizzler pull and peels. I was nothing but smiles while riding with Mike today, he is good company and will certainly push me this season. The riding in Bull Valley is like you suddenly transport into a different world when you get back there....its like being in the north woods of Wisconsin. I had a great time riding the Gunnar for the first time since New Years eve day....I forgot how smooth the Chris King BB and hubs are....I'm spoiled. Anyhow....I think its about time for a Leffe Blonde and some couch time. More miles = more smiles.

    "Something happened (which casued the market to fall to 6500.)" Told managers of CalPers funds to sell/manipulated CalPers' holdings?
    Allowed the hustlers who got out of the market at/near its peak 90s, into real estate, out at real eastate market peak 05-07 to buy stocks dirt cheap and get back into the market at 6500.

    In the course of decay and deterioration of the favor of the people the gods instructed their clone host tools in corporate to make changes to their products and subsequently in people's lives. The switch to plastic/disposable-based packaging is an outstanding example. Another is the extensive use/proliferation of disposable diapers. Whereas diaper services were the norm during the 20th cenutry a change occurred in the 70s/80s and parents began to incurr evil upon their children, and sadly in some cases think they were "earning" off their own infant children!!!

    "Poisoning their brainwashed minds." xtainity brainwashed you. Liberalism is the poison.
    The gods used xtainity to demonize Lucifer, ensuring people refused to heed the teachings of THE SECOND COMING!!!. Lucifer is the Second Coming of Christ!!!
    xtianity is the product of the Apostle's books of the New Testiment and can't be trusted to contain the true teachings of Jesus Christ. Just like each one of you corrupt whores, the gods could have tempted them with immortality if they lied when writing the New Tesatiment. Then the gods dictated verbatim specifically to parlay into the destructive phenominah known as xtianity.
    We have seen the gods engage in similar behavior to keep people away from good religions, with the Jews in Palestine and Muslims recently post-9.11, demonizing both.
    This is another of the god's wicked curveballs, their reverse positioning tool extensively employed, utilizing positioning to prepare for the Apocalypse and your "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".

    "1000 years with Jesus" may start at different times for different people::::
    Medical advances I mention below may already be invented, courtesy of biotechnology, but reserved for the wealthy.
    Proof money is not favor:::Not only will they die before the masses, since their clock began sooner, but some of these individuals may have been "guinea pigs" in the perfection of these advances.
    Just clone host fakes who were sold they are the lucky ones anyways.

    Even as peasant farmers we could be lulled::Good weather, bountiful harvests, etc. This illustrates old-world preacher's effectiveness::::
    This stereotypical preacher had classic preaching styles:::Loud, damnation-fueled teachings. Contrast to today, preachers who are lulling the Damned into "cruise control, the old-world style was important to snap people out of complacency. Unfortunately, in today's enviornment people consider this style insulting, and they lose a precious message designed for the favored of yesterday.
