Conquered that Bastard Hill without pushing the Bike

Got up at 8.30 this morning got myself ready for today's ride, had porridge for breakfast.

I left home about 9.45 but this time on my scott with the intention of getting up the hill that defeated me last Sunday Blog here

So cycled to Carshalton had to stop at the lights at the beginning of the hill, the lights changed so I set off anyway, I got I suppose about quarter of a mile and I had to stop my legs were feeling it, so sat on my bike had a drink must have sat there for 5 minutes, decided lets go for it so I set off again determined that I wasn't stopping again till I reached the top, from bottom to top must be about three to four miles. Anyway I kept going and going till I reached the top. I had a rest at the top for about ten minutes, where I consumed more drink and a Lucozade energy gel.

Set off again feeling pleased with myself even though I stopped once, I headed down to Beddington Park where I completed a couple of laps.

After leaving Beddington I set off for home via a roundabout route because I need more miles to complete the July 150

My Route Here

20.14 miles today pleased with that, arms and legs ache just a little.

July 150 Miles 132.89
