Double KL with DC

Posted on: Sunday November 22, 2015

I sent a text out to the usual suspects on Saturday night asking if anyone would be keen to join me for 100km or so in the morning, hopefully taking in some extended climbing, maybe Kinglike. Only Dave replied, ‘but I’ll need to be home by 10.’


I met DC at 6am at the bottom of Antoinette Boulevard and we took the direct route. After the kick he set out to chase the clock (19 minutes something). I just tried to keep a purposeful cadence the whole way, hoping it’d result in a PB. It didn’t, but came close at 23:25. Hoping to roll a 20 minute effort before the seasons out.

Up at the top we had a quick debate about whether to roll back down and pick up the extra kays ‘somewhere’, or just to roll down the back and then come back up. As soon as it was mentioned it was basically agreed, and we dropped like stones down to the highway before knocking out a decent tempo all the way back up again.

No time for photos, but we saw most of the PWC team sweating it out on the way up, Blankfield with his pain face on, toasting the rest of em.
