Bike Bragging

This ad cracks me up.

I rode a short loop today. Around here, some of our tougher little hills have names. Today I rode Priory Hill and Orchard Hill. (You can guess what's at the top of each of these little hills, can't you?) The Tour men wouldn't notice them, but I do. You know the way the Tour men look after a 100+ mile ride going up a really steep 5K climb at the end? And some of them "fall" off the back? I look like I've fallen off the back of my lone self peleton after 2 miles and a very short hill. But it's worth the struggle to get up the hill when I get to bomb down it.

I wonder how many energy gels I could eat without throwing up?

  1. Oh how I wish I could go uphill as well as even the worst guy in the peloton! It is amazing watching them attack some of those monsters in the Pyrenees.
