The only way I could have felt more virtuous was…

The only way I could have felt more virtuous was if it had been snowing.

Actually not true. Arriving home my body temperature was sub-zero, but what a great ride, great views and great feeling.

If I’m honest, without the Ronda 101 challenge it would have been easy to either stay cosily at home, spend time with kids and do what most normal people do on New Year’s Eve.

But various layers and baby-bootees went on and off we go.

Ice, ice, baby:

Contrary to what Velominati say, always carry your own water:

Instead of sheep stopping play, sheep wisely get out of way:

View from the top? No, how do I get up there?

Rolling week’s training diary:

  • Friday: rest
  • Saturday: 1 hour MTB slow
  • Sunday: 90 mins soccer
  • Monday: 2 hour MTB real slow
  • Tuesday: mega weights session
  • Wednesday: 2 hour MTB feeling great (despite -6ยบ)
  • Tomorrow: rest day

Happy New Year (remember January 3rd for Ronda 101 registration – will feel quite silly if don’t get it…)
