Cold Rainy Weekend Ahead… Let’s ride in the mountains!

Forecast is nasty for this weekend. Why not hit the studios and try out the new Zwift mountain course! http://zwiftblog.com/watopia-mountain-route-released/   and the route on strava   http://zwiftblog.com/new-watopia-mountain-route-on-strava/

New climb is 1200 feet over 6 miles at a 3.8% average grade with a descent of 1200 feet in 3.7 miles at a 6.1% average grade. I assume you can do it in reverse and ride the steep climb but I haven’t tried yet. Off to ride the mountain now!
Edit- confirmed, you can ride it the steep direction! Woohoo!
