Day 7 of Practically Perfect cycling weather in Frankfurt and I took advantage of to do the road climb up Großer Feldberg (at 884 meters above sea level, the tallest point in the Taunus). I was really slow averaging about 7 mph over the 8 miles and almost 2100 feet of climbing (my biggest climb on Strava) and got passed by 6 or 7 other riders on the climb. The descent into Schmitten was nail-biting, I don't rally mind the climbing but steep descents do me in.
