Another North - South climb of TMNH on the Pompino today, 6:15. Way better than New Years Day  :thumbsup:.

About 300 metres short of the pink house I overtook a guy wearing a leukaemia and blood cancer charity jersey and I said to him "I thought your jersey said "bloody Lance" back there!" he laughed and said "I make it look too easy!"  ;D

That concludes my Alps training, I don't want to peak too soon!  ::-)

Same as last time but now on 72" and 7:10 from sign to pub.

Caught and passed another rider and would've passed his friend but he stopped at the pink house. It makes my day when I can still say a cheery "morning" and see their faces turn purple at they try to get breath to reply.  ;D

Surely not? They had the carbon bikes and lots of gears! I had my cheap steel Pompino and one gear.  8)

I don't know what that means!  Are you taking your Galaxy?

The Galaxy it is and it has 21 gears ranging from 27" - 103". Then my two feet (24").
I would love to take the Pompino but I'm sane, I told myself that just this morning as I was shaving my palms.  :P

Another north - south traverse of TMNH. 6:22 sign to the George (or whatever it's name is). No one to overtake today but it wasn't my slowest mile today!  :o I punctured just over a mile from home and hoofed it.

It would appear you are the only person riding up TMNH at the moment.  Must be lonely!

None of the clubs I ride with go up TMNH anymore. Lazy gits the lot of 'em!

Haven't done TMNH for a couple of months but was googling the height of our beloved mountain after reading the everest thread and found this one

I refuse to be drawn into this silliness. You lot need to get out less.

Made me smile

Ah yes. I remember back when I lived in East Anglia, and a 66m gain was a "hill"  ;D

I wonder if my North Hill ascent count will ever increase again. I suppose I'd need to ride my bike outdoors, at the very least...
