Finding your climbing legs !

Man it's been a few years since I've gone out to Willard Brook and into Ashby for some climbing after work. With a slow start to the cycling season for me it's been a battle getting my climbing legs going. Today was a nice hot one and the legs do enjoy the heat so it was a much better climbing day. Hoping I've found my climbing legs.

Nice job on those hills! How many miles for the entire ride?

Wow, watching that on ChromeCast on my TV made me almost feel like I was along for the ride - as a passenger, of course. What was your average speed?

When I ride after work during the week I tend to shoot for 20-30 miles. This ride was 26.17 miles and ended with an average speed of 16.7.

I recently found my climbing legs during two weeks of self contained touring:
