Riding the Mountain Bike Home
I'm not really a MTB cyclist, even though I used to do Duathalon Racing (run 2.5km + downhill offroad cycle 20km + run 2.5km) many many years ago. Today I had a hospital meeting so I thought I'd get dropped of, then cycle back home over the hill afterwards.
I was really enjoying riding on the Valleys flat roads, stopping every now and then to take photo's. As I headed towards the hill, the weight of this bike was always on my mind, definitely not looking forward to the hill climb.
The weight made a big difference, I was struggling just to maintain a constant cadence, even at the lowest gear. Admittedly my fitness is not quite up to par and a few more weeks doing this hill climb on the MTB would make it easier.
1st and last time I'd ride this MTB up this side of the hill
It was overcast, with a slight breeze, perfect cycling conditions, for my Road Bike, but today wasn't about that.
