Hill climbing night last night. 34k in total, from home to the top of the hill/mountain, and back.

My aim of the ride was to keep a consistent power output over the duration of the ride. I did ok in this goal, but not great. I'm blaming the lack of warm-up. Basically I left the house, did a couple K's of warm-up and then started climbing. The legs definitely weren't ready.

I did plan for the ride well though. Arm warmers, five finger gloves, and a vest were all worn for the down. And man, was the down EVER quick. I saw quite a few riders huffing it up the mountain too. Nice to know I'm not the only glutton for punishment.

The battery in my PM died too after 1,600+ km. Not sure if that's good battery life or not.
