Another day in Citrusdal
Monday started off cool and crisp, a bit like early morning in France. Rain at midday. Afternoon crisp and clear, did not ride [training for an Argus Tour] 3.45am leaving from Cape Town makes your day very long. Today another story - a slow ride up the road to warm up and then back to go up the mountain. Total human torture 5km of non-stop climbing even granny granny doesn't help. Maybe it will get better later. A road bike might also help. The place I live in is ideal if you want to have long rides. No taxis, very few cars and trucks. Most of the people are locals and greet you every time they pass. At the moment we are only 8 people riding. Will give regular upgrades on fitness improvement.
