T'was a fun & interesting day with Domenic and a considerable amount of hills!
I'd classify today's ride as a medium intensity ride as we really took it easy and did some hills to warm up our legs for tomorrow's group ride which is always interesting (WHEN IT DOESN'T RAIN).
The main highlight of today's ride was this hill -
This takes you from Xlendi Road up to Kercem. To anyone who knows where this road is and the condition of this road you'd know that it was quite difficult to climb with a road bike. And it was! It's peak gradient was at around 15% on unpaved road and it isn't even a grippy surface! But it was a ton of fun...especially when you're climbing up and feel as if you'll topple over! SCARY STUFF.
But as you should ALWAYS do - KEEP CLIMBING AND DON'T LOOK BACK!
