Sunday ride to Bicester and Waterperry

Sunday, 23 December 2018 - 9:30am

Taking Muswell Hill up to Brill before lunch.  A challenge to allow us to indulge ourselves 2 days later 🙂

Ride report

Muswell Hill!

Cyclists have no need for managements consultants who like to teach us the price of over enthusiasm. For the cyclist making an all out assault on Muswell Hill, the price is intense discomfort – a memorable lesson, one would hope. Even so, many cyclists have muttered curses under their breath when they realise they have attacked the climb with enthusiastic naivety. Today, the discomfort could no longer be contained under the breath, but loud enough for all around to hear and accompanied by nods of agreement: “It’s a bit of a bugger!”
