Rapha Rising Day 2.

For the first ride of day two, we had to rise early. I'm not an early riser unlike Minipips, but needs must. The only way we'd get enough riding time on his school days was to get up early and get some altitude in before he went to school.

Initially we'd joked that hill reps up the nearest hill would be good, but instead we opted for three different hills, with a bit of off road too.

Another sunny day, though not too warm yet.

Out of the door for 6:30 am, and back for 8.

469 metres of up on Strava

Ride number 2 of the day left the house at 4:30pm. We had an original plan which was radically changed so we may meet some friends on Long Hill a bit later.

So instead we found a new to us Bridleway.

The bridleway even had some cobbles.

The weather was not as hot as it has been, but we stopped often for drinkies.

We met our friends at 6:30 and rode till 8:30. Other than the rush hour traffic, another great ride.

1133 metres of climbing this evening, which means we're already 39% of the way to our goal.

Strava route here.
