George Street Bike Challenge for Major Taylor

I should mention that the George Street hill climb happened Sunday in Worcester as it has since 2002. The Major Taylor Association and Barney’s Bicycle have been holding the event to raise money to build a statue downtown to commemorate Major Taylor. The race is only 500 feet long at an 18 percent average grade but it’s a ton of fun. A bunch of us from Providence like to go and ride up on fixed gear bikes hoping that we’ve chosen the perfect gear. There’s always a couple of Circle A’s going up and here are a couple of shots to prove it. More shots can be found here.
