You Can't Beat Wellington On A Good Day !

Or, so they say.

Wandered along a stream then up a hill, down a road with cars on it, then up a grassy hill to a trig.
Then bumpity bumpity back to metropolis.

Very fun :lol:

We have only had a couple of nasty days each month since about October? Some tracks are getting quite dusty.

And today was blue skies, no wind, no air pollution... big hills and tracks close to the city.

AND you made it up to the turbine today too Robbie! That's two big hills in one day! (although I think the Subie may have helped with the second one!) Sorry I didn't stop and say Hi - we were too busy discussing the merits of locking vs not locking the LG gate....

Ah true, but I drove up there to say hi to Squished cat and his Dad, while avoiding their ride to Hawkins Hill.!
Yeah the new rules mean that gate is pretty much locked. Not a problem for those on bikes.

I am scheming for a ride tomorrow, although I assume I will be slightly battered.

It feels like I use as much energy going down as up!
Just an illusion magnified by fear of physical pain, I am sure.

I got shown a great satellite pic of Canada from early Feb where Victoria was the only part of Canada that didn't have snow...

I'm bitching about nothing I have had 3 powder days (or west-coast concrete if you belive the locals) up Mt Washington....
