weak end

I have not gone gently, but whimpering in to this good week.

Man I whooped my hind quarters on a nice bike ride with bolsinga yesterday. we did the fairfax/olema/bolinas/fairfax loop and I am paying for it.

Here's a link to the biggest climb. I calculate it as about only a 4% grade, but it sure feels like a lot more than that when you're half way through a 50 odd mile ride. My guess is it's probably more like 4.5% for the majority of the climb; it levels out a bit for the beginning and end.

In case you're wondering (am I know I am) the gears were approximately 42X24 (from memory) for a wow, was it really that low 47 gear inches. Not sure what Greg was pushing but it was close (as evidenced by the large amount of profanity on the uphills)

I'm still not forgiving her for mr. mcclaren

but this quote from dame westwood, well, it's pretty cool:
"A single idea is a hundred decisions if you take into account the decisions of a lifetime."
