America's toughest mile: Lincoln Gap

The good news about Lincoln Gap is that Bicycling magazine recently ranked the east side as the "toughest mile in America." The bad news is that if you haven't already, now you've got to ride it. Why?

* You'll love the smell of Connecticut brakes in the morning.

* At the crux of the climb, when the sweat flows like beer and the steepness seems vertical, you're going to be asked by a passing motorist with a cooler full of beer for directions to the Long Trail.

* Just like Manny, you'll lose count of the pitches after the first one.
