Birthday Ride

What to have as a birthday present? A grinding ride through the Surrey hills!

I was abit disappointed by the average speed after we blitzed the lead up to the hills and went pretty quick up them. I think it’s the fact that the descents were all narrow, twisting, wet and one in particular, incredibly rough. I’m not a strong descender at the best of times, but this was just silly.

Nice to have a ride with friends in beautiful countryside though.

  1. I think your friends were slowing you up.
    Can you spot winterfold on the elevation profile? 🙂

  2. I can, I can also spot the 3mph we managed to go up it at!

    Did you like the time trial bar effect? Will you re-consider?

    • Lol, back wheel spinning through lack of traction on the wet road. A nice hill 🙂

      I think they (tt bars) are pointless for me if I’m honest, but then my grips and sitting position are comfortable plus my bar bag would get in the way.
