I'm starting to have nightmares about the Sportful Dolomiti gran fondo which I'll be riding on June 18th, in just a few weeks time.
As an old lady I'm only allowed to do the shorter (!) ride of 133.8km and a squillion,000 m of climbing ..last year I took >6 hours which included 2 punctures..I'm hoping to do something similar this year but without the punctures!
to add insult to injury the final 400m is technical, on cobbles and with a 150m very nasty heave up to the finish line....
so I've started once again to ride the climbs around where I live and this is what I saw on the way to the top of one the other day
only in Aus!
