Escape to the mountains!

Recommended Posts

Got to be done......it's the only way to avoid the heat if you're out on the bike!

Bear in mind that I live at 3000ft anyway, so I have to go way above that to get a 10C drop in temperatures. Nice when you're up there, but once you start descending again the heat really hits you.

I'm not that keen on the roads either! Yes they're twisty and winding but the variable surface and bad tarmac aren't too clever!

Plus, the road is narrow and very often you can be in the middle of a bend and find a car on the wrong side of the road coming right at you. On occasions there's a sheer drop of hundreds of feet on the bends as well.....so it's not a road for Casuals!

Bike went superbly......so easy to manage, and quite frankly, any more power and weight would be of no use to you in this sort of environment.
