Cold air fills your lungs as you climb another short steep hill. You mentally prepare yourself to drop into another bar gripping descent. You will soon double back and hit the SRT for an impromptu time trial.
You will finish descending Rock Hill Road. Darkness overtaking the sky. Knowing what you have accomplished in the Greater Philadelphia All Terrain Cycling Classic.
