Hey Fargo, its probably better to walk it off when your legs get smoked on the hills..Give it 2 weeks, riding 2 to 3 days a week;; you'll be smoking those hills..
I knew it was going to be a problem and considered dismounting about halfway up. Broken jaw, broken arm, broken scaphoid, hope I can avoid any more of those too!
Did you carry a spare puncture kit?Word on the 'street' bicycle lanes is that you've smuggled a few or two beneath your budgie smugglers whilst wearing lucre/ lycra.Just joking Bro
I used to cycle but these days roads to dangerouse and probable i would need a moto cycle
Hey Fargo, you could also try standing on your peddles more than sitting on the seat;; doing this on the down hills gives a better sense of control, you can react better to direction change and bumps/humps on the road..
