Going up

Any Monday you don’t have to go to work is good, but what makes it great is when you get a nice long ride in too. One of my riding buddies cancelled on the early morning mtb ride we had planned so I made the most of the morning and slept in, hypocritical I know.

I got up feeling suitably guilty and jumped on the R3 for some mountain climbing. Half way up the climb I wished it had the 12-25 cluster, I suppose i was just feeling lazy today.
Castle Hill is a funny climb, not hard, not easy; steep, but not steep enough to stop you from doing it a few times in a row. You’d have to agree it’s worth it for the view.

Why do I only hear comments from fat men about how stupid I am for riding instead of driving!?!?!?
