When the tar is so hot it is running down the road!
No problems it saved 8km, we thought. Except as we started to climb I thought it was raining, the tar/road was so hot it wasn't just making a noise it was coating the tyres and that syrupy feeling was slowing me down dragging us back down the hill.
All of that combined with the hill hitting 18% was all you need on a blisteringly hot day... Um are we there yet?
Finally at the top, about 10 minutes before the riders get here, a quick hamburger and a coke and we are ready for the riders.
Here's a photo of Joe (the birthday boy and I at the top.
