    I hope I didn't offend anyone with this. Keep in mind that I am the clyde here. It came to me as I was dropped in dramatic fashion on a climb by someone far younger and lighter than I am.

    My Saturday ride
    I hear them, "Attack the hill!"
    Thanks for the support.

    In appreciation of the roadies I saw as I neared the top of a nasty little hill I encountered on my Saturday morning ride and their show of encouragement as I pedaled my way to the top (Passed a few people who had decided to walk).

    The wind is blowing hard
    I think I'm struggling
    Then i see 20 skinny's struggling behind me





    Getting dropped going up hill is a fact of life. your choice is to become stronger and or lighter to change this.
    "If you never suffered from over training then you've never trained hard enough"

    Some days your the windshield and some days you are the cyclist. either way it doesn't look like its going to be a good day for you.

    Who did not finish,
    But had the courage to start,
    Is still a winner.
