It was really f*in gnarly. Did it with a 39x25 this morning. Not ideal!!!

Its a hard one. I had 36x25 and it was enough gear, but I'm also pretty good at low cadence climbing, however, its still not even close to easy. The section with the cattle guards is particularly tough. I also shredded my rear tire descending it and it was a rough, rough descent.

My friend told me that he drove over OSM to the other side of the mountain the other day and found some great routes- that's my next thing to try out there.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate Froome.

Thanks! It's good to be back. Happy I didn't panic and eBay-off all my bike loot. ;)

I went out with a friend to take some pics with the GoPro on a stick. Quite funny, but I have to improve some angles.

Very cool. The next step is to Photoshop out the pole!

True... but then my arm/hand looks silly positioned :-)

Next time with a scooter, and position the camera so the pole is not visible :-)

It was just a small ride, and I brought a little rope to sling it over my shoulder
