I had thought about a wee run out to Largs this morning and then changed my mind and went for some more of the hills around here. I actually fancy a hike up the Haylie Brae, is that a good workout Craig?
The technology part I was referring to was modern gearing and how easy it is having 10 on the back and a compact front compared to the days when I was stomping on 42/53 and 11/19, I think I would be walking up hills with these gears nowadays.
You're not too far away either Richard, so it could be possible for a mass gathering some day
ha haa!! yes, you and me both - those gear ratios when we were kids were lunacy!
i have yet to do the "heelie" brae since my return to the bike but i'm going to have a go at it soon, i can feel it in my bones!
i was reading my old ron kitching cycling diaries that i used to keep updated when i was young and fanatical - there was an entry about riding "around largs and up the heelie brae..." no mention whatsoever about what a beast it is or anything!! in fact, i'm sure that we used to hoof that in the big ring!
yes, i'd be up for a blast on the bikes - i work shifts but am off most weekends, thankfully. anyone else in the vicinity up for a retro ride?
