Rist-Masonville loop

This is a great loop with tons of climbing. Starting from my house, Bingham Hill is a nice warmup before the real climbing begins. If you’re short on time, you can just tag the mailboxes (a little less than 1/2 way) or the fire station (an extra mile past the mailboxes). The full loop is more strenuous, as there are few small rises up to Masonville, and then you end with the hogbacks. (Note that this order is if you ride in an anti-clockwise fashion, the easier route, if you ask me; riding clockwise is much tougher due to the steep grade near the top of Rist.)

Descending from the top of Rist is big fun. My personal best for max speed is 62 MPH, so see if you can beat that. :)
