Up Caerphilly Mountain

Me going up Caerphilly Mountain!

Me going up Caerphilly Mountain!

Not long back from my ride to and from Caerphilly today including a brutal climb up Caerphilly Mountain. Of course I also managed to watch the two ascents of the mountain by the Tour of Britain professional riders later on. Tough climb but very satisfying (hence the fist pumping in the photo)

    Nice one Dave, so that wasn’t you running up the hill in the speedos and wrestling mask πŸ™‚
    Rain aside I bet it was great day, I only wish I could fly up steep gradients like Martin & Quintana

    • backpackbrewer says:

      They were awesome especially Martin on the second climb….flew up

      It wasnt me in the speedo’s although he wasnt far away from where I was standing (last turn near the top of the hill).

      great day all round πŸ™‚
