What’s with all the -ings around here, anyways?

I’ve ridden past zur Walba more times than I can count over the last year, and I’ve always looked up the hill on the cross street and shuddered at the thought of biking past it. Well, today, I bit the bullet and did it. It was long and slow, but much less steep than I imagined.

It was supposed to be 32 °C by noon today, so I made sure to get started before 8:00. By the time I was two-thirds of the way through my route, it looked like it was going to rain, and it actually felt cooler.
