....till now!

Unsurprisingly, out of the minuscule amount of rides I've put in for this year - around 14 rides total- , today's ride is (to this date) the longest one I've ridden. To be honest, it's probably one of the longest rides I've done for the last 2-3months since I've been extremely lazy lately.

Jumping straight into the ride...It consisted of a ton of hills (not really), namely Nadur, Ramla, Xaghra, Zebbug and Dwejra! By far, the hardest hills of the ride were Ramla and Dwejra due to the simple fact that they hit a gradient of 15 degrees a couple of times...which is nasty! But they are probably the most fun out of all the hills in Gozo.

Speaking of hills...I'd like to start a new 'Series' of posts which will talk about each individual hill in Gozo and will include all of their details such as average gradient, length, difficulty etc...should be fun! I'll work extra hard to deliver this!

Longer Rides comin'!

200km will be the highlight of 2017...probably!
