Hot on Ham
I zipped up the mountain hoping to shatter my previous Low Key Hillclimb time back in 2009, only to lose a lot of time the last 5 miles, beginning at the intersection with Kincaid. I scored the same time as then -- 2 hr 45 min. I don't see vast improvement unless I'm willing to train ... not going to happen. And thus, the realization that I will probably volunteer for next year's LKHC Mt Ham ride -- wouldn't want anyone to miss their dinner.
It was a treat biking with Miss P. It was also a treat taking in the studly unshaven leather clad motorcyclist at the top. I might have noticed The Boyfriend but he finished in 2 hrs and didn't stick around. His loss, eh. There were lots of cyclists on the climb but not the numbers I expected. I wonder if they were off doing the other annual tradition -- the San Bruno climb. And a parade of Porches and one Lamborghini. Here's to another year of cycling adventures! Happy New Year Miss P, Miss A (doing the San Bruno climb), and to the rest of you.
