Col de la Bon Aire
There is a great segment just made for the FatGuy behind Bon Aire Shopping Center. It is a quick 65 foot rise over less than 0.1 mile at an 8% grade. It is the most annoying part of every commute home from the Larkspur Ferry as it is impossible to get over the steepness sitting down in the saddle. Every once in a while, however, I am inspired me to hit it hard to try and get the KOM. Last night, I got 21 seconds which ties by best attempt. I have four attempts at 21 seconds, one at 22 seconds and seven at 23 seconds - and dozens north of 45 seconds. The KOM was 19 seconds until a fishy ride showed up last month at 17 seconds (on top of several other top 10s on other segments). Long story short. No KOM love yesterday. I am waiting for the unicorn tailwind to get me sub 20. Stay tuned.
