Another one from the archives for St. Patrick’s Day! (Originally posted in 2012)
Here is a simple rolling hills profile set to Irish music to entertain your class. You’re either going up or down on this ride through the bonny green hills of Erie, on narrow roads lined with low stone fences through green pastures dotted with sheep, on your way to meet friends at the Mystic Celt pub. How’s that for a visual as you ride? Enjoy this profile… and ride responsibly 😉
Love the ride, Jennifer. Had to cut it shorter for 45 minute ride, substituted “With or Without You” U2 for finale. Now I’m gonna go buy some black and tan for dinner post ride!
This will be so fun – thanks for the ride profile and suggestions – can’t wait to do this tomorrow!
