I've decided I like climbing...well actually it is an enforced decision with virtually 70% of every day being spent going uphill!!
The climbing legs have finally kicked in, which is good..I even managed a 15%
grovel today and before you say ..well so what ..15%, pfft easy peasy..don't forget the series of >100km days and the inherent fatigue.......
My riding group...you tend to gravitate to people you can keep up with...are in the throes of a discussion about the large number of holes in many of the buildings' walls...i reckoned they are/were holes for pigeons ie a pigeon loft and during lunch today was delighted to see a pigeon fly into one of the holes...there you are I said...QED. However I'm a lone voice on this topic...i'll post a pix tomorrow on my day off for your comments.
We all agree on one thing and that is...... as we are slogging up a 15km hill and with the road weaving left and right and there in front of us is an even steeper road than what we are on.......we ALL hope/wish/pray fervently that that road is NOT the one we're about to take..trust me some of those roads are waaaaaay steep.
