The only technically challenging part of a 401 ride is the “Black Hole”. This ravine looks nearly impossible, but riders do clear it from time to time. The trick is committing to riding it- a halfhearted attempt won’t get you far. It usually takes me a couple of tries before I finally go for it, which means hitting it faster than you think you should, thereby allowing your momentum to take you over the other side a ways before you need to pedal again.
Just another day in the hills…
