Last Thursday was such a nice day that I decided to head for the hills and ride a reasonable mountain pass, then just as I arrived at the foot of the hills I bumped into the local club bunch, who had an impromptu scheduled ride during the current school holidays.
I had a decision to make, do I go for the hills or join the bunch….. nah, bunch it was…. phew, managed to avoid the big climbing.
But, todays regular Saturday bunch was bigger than usual with a lot more faster guys, plus the ride was into the hills…..doh!
Ended up 37% into Zone 4…. my legs are shattered, lost the the faster guys on the climb but managed to claim 2nd overall on the down hill chasing them down.
