Bill rode Wednesday in the morning to the first saddle. The hillsides are green this year.
The clouds grew and covered most of the sky by the evening time. Still the road was dry. The air moist and the legs were willing. I chose a bigger gear and pushed my way up the mountain. I was pleased as my final time was 2 seconds off my personal best from last year. Two seconds. I think back to where I could have pushed a bit harder. I am happy. My inspiration comes from Alice who works out six days a week. Her performance has motivated me to exercise almost daily. Another tip I received from Helle a pro cyclist from Dubai was to stretch after each ride.
