details here https://veloviewer.com/segment/876936/Mamore+Gap
up to 22, or 19, depending on length of segment. All I could do to stay on the bike...

(sorry about the photos. I see them all)

I may be wrong but it seems like some of you guys have a pro photographer following you all the time. Cool!

Have you thought of going into a side business of selling bike riding posters featuring yourself? Jealous much!

In the end, after many phone calls, I got documents of the dog's vaccination status from the family. Seems ok.
The lady, the lady dog, or both, need training.
I was bitten by a persistent dog a few years ago, but thankfully it had had its shots. I filed a police report anyway, to have on record for the next time it bit a cyclist.

Had another run-in with an aggressive dog on one of my favorite routes again yesterday. Ruined a rear tire locking up the brakes (my fault) as the dog invariably runs in front of me. This road is on the route of an upcoming century ride, so I reported this dog to the race organizers in case they can get something done about it.

A quick google turned up this product, http://www.nelsonpaintball.com/animal-control/ "Not intended for recreational use." :wink:
