The first time I “rode” up Canary Hill nearly 10 years ago, I walked huffing and puffing the whole way. Canary Hill is a short, but challenging hill in Hurley, NY. The climb is just over 1/3 of a mile, but it packs a wallop. It starts at 13%, a third of the way up the slope increases to 34%, at two thirds you get some respite at 27%, and then it finally levels out at the end.

It is a drug like alcohol to be used wisely. When the last time you went off it intentionally and entirely for a while??? For stronger living,Tanner Shultz

It amazes me how good the first 40° day feels in Spring when it nearly shuts me down in the Fall.
