Dragon Ride 2014

This is me slogging my way up a hill during the 2014 Dragon Ride. The photo doesn't show quite how tired I was feeling!

Nothing so gentlemanly crossed my mind, all I could think was 'Is this the last corner? Is that the top?' At the point this photo was taken the answer was 'no' to both questions!

Being the gentleman cyclist, did you stop and offer to push his bike for him before remounting and continuing :)  Love the photo and  top effort - hat's off!!

Great photo Gavin and that cyclist walking his bike up not only makes your efforts even more impressive, but also helps to show how steep that incline is!  Good to see the weather turned in your favour - there was a point in the week leading up to it when it was looking a bit bleak!

Yes, someone walking makes me look quite a reasonable cyclist. In truth, I wasn't far from getting off on that corner, the inside line looked impossibly steep so I had to take the long way round the outside edge of the road.

Always good to have a photo with people walking their bikes in the background. Makes you look extra hardcore!
