First day at #costadelsol with @stockholmcykelklubb. Started with a terrible hour in rain and 9 degrees and puncture. Of course without rain jacket. 🤦♂️ Ended up with ☀️. 127 km for the legs, more will hit us tomorrow 🚵🏻♂️☀️😍
210KM / 3500m (my @garminuk missed 1000m AGAIN and will soon be replaced by a @wahoofitnessofficial Element). The 13 ⛰
York Hill (100Climbs no.15)
Coldharbour Lane (100Climbs no.118)
Leith Hill (100Climbs no.17)
White Down (100Climbs no.18)
Combe Lane (100Climbs)
Taken a couple days to load this one but after finding this route over a year ago I finally got around to doing the route. A reasonably daunting prospect since I’ve only ridden over 100km 3 times this year but knew I had to push myself to gain some time in the saddle and distance in the legs.
Thankfully the legend that is @hazzel_frazzel joined for the first 120km and all the climbs of the Kent Pyrenees, Box Hill and Coldharbour Lane.
Thinking that the worst was likely over, i set of safe in the knowledge there was only 80km to go and 4 main climbs, what I hadn't accounted for was just how tired I was going to get with all the smaller elevations in between. 50km later I had hit a wall and with light fading I have never been happier to reach the A24 and it’s comfortingly aggressive traffic! A gentle 30km back to central london followed and made even better on arrival by @mrmarknomadic and a curry!
Just over a month to @mallorca312 - feeling slightly more ready! #Cyling#CylingLife#Strava#StravaPhoto#Ride#Fitness#StravaCycling#CyclingShots#Bike#Biking#Fast#ActiveLife#OutsideIsFree#Peloton#Race#LifeBehindBars#Fitness#Like4Like#Follow4Follow#BikeLife#InstaCycling#RoadCycling#InstaPhoto#Cyclist#CyclingShots#CyclingPics#IGersCycling#WhySleepWhenICanRide
