700 - Crestwood Killer Century

It was the toughest century of the year but with perhaps the most spectacular views. Bill Pustow captained one of Rory's old rides from the nineties. For a while, this ride was a yearly regular, long before the Mad Dogs got their names. The Crestwood killer features seven major step climbs of up to 500 feet putting the OKHT Pottershop Century to shame. The route took us through Oldham, Henry, Trimble and Carroll counties with a stop in Milton, KY for lunch. This was the last "Tour de Mad Dog" century of the season; so, the group also passed the traditional Hot Pickle for tasting at the Bray Orchard store stop. This century came with great vistas, hard work, and a tremendous feeling of accomplishment as riders from age 28 to age 73 tackled the climbs.
