A ride that wasn't supposed to happen, happened. Instead of parking at the usual spot I bypassed my usual starting point and kept driving (hey, it's Saturday!) Once on the bike I started feeling shaky and a tad uninspired. A quick resolution to that problem were hills, so I climbed up the paved next to Groat road, descended and went a little further, climbed a little more, and so on and so on..
The gist of the ride was climbing. The first climb out of the valley quickly snapped me into shape and I was glad I made the journey.
