Life after work and the trips of a lifetime

"We are judged by what we finish, not by what we start." - Anonymous

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woo hoo! What a ride!..attributed in this form to either Maxine Cartoon or anon

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 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 me some of those roads are waaaaaay steep.

Pompeii tomorrow
