CHRIS’S 3 TIPS FOR CONQUERING THE CASCADES CLIMB
Find the sweet spot
The point at which you put enough weight on your front wheel to keep it on the ground, but not so much that the back spins.
You don’t want to carry a hydration pack or extra water bottle up here. Or bulk around your midriff (i.e. you need to be fit to tackle this monster).
Ignore the voices
The one in your head that says it’s okay to stop... and the other from your legs that begs you to stop before you do yourself a damage.
