Managed to squeeze in 40km today by opting to ride to and from the mother in laws for the whole family Christmas dinner malarky. Had a fantastic day all barring the last climb on the way home. We live at the top of what Strava apparently tells me is a 4th category climb. Now in the height of summer when I’ve got my climbing legs on this is all well and good, but at this time of year when I climb like an asthmatic sumo wrestler, and after feasting big time festive style I almost died. It was definitely all worth it though, had a great day and it’s now time to put my feet up with a malt based recovery beverage.
Merry Christmas to you all.
