Sycamore Street Made a Big Impression on Me
Sycamore Street has a dual notoriety; it's number seven in the Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen hill series, and it was the key feature of the Thrift Drug Classic when that bicycle race was held in Pittsburgh. This depiction of the grade is an effective presentation.
I believe I stopped six times while riding up Sycamore Street. I look forward to someday only stopping five times. My profanity is insufficient to describe this climb.
On the way back across the North Side, I noticed that a full-size MouseTrap game had been erected at the Carnegie Science Center. Somehow I'd missed it on the initial leg southbound.
