OK GO!

Mt Pleasant long loop

Posted on: Sunday April 17, 2011

Met Neil at 6:30 and headed out to do the Mt Pleasant loop we weren’t able to fit in the last couple of times. It was 9° when we rolled out, 7° in the misty hills before the day bloomed, beautiful and warm, and after a solid night’s sleep I was full of labrador enthusiasm and bounded at the early hills. By the 45 km mark I had legs of wood. Not cracked, not blown, just snap-less. Uh oh. I downed my get-out-of-jail-free Gu and it had the desired effect.

In total, the loop accumulates almost as much climbing as the old King Lake circuit and can be extended to be almost as long without ever falling back onto the drudgery of main roads to get there. Not only that, it stays within emergency bailing distance of the city. Anyway…

You might say I’m too tired to write this up properly, or you might say I’m too lazy. Either way— zzz. Here are some pictures:
