Woooo a day off today however Carol and I still headed for Edinburgh and the King of Kaimes hill climb.
I hadn’t been on my Ridley Orion in over two weeks and my last race was in March so to say I was a bit rusty was an understatement!
We arrived at the start early and I was second to register which meant I was second off at 30 secs past 1 min past 7 accurate or what!
Kaimes Road is a residential street in Costorphine Edinburgh and rises 213 ft in less than .4 of a mile. The stats according to Strava, an av of 6.9 mph and 232w unofficial time 3:28. A hard 3:28 but really too short to love or hate.
The event is organised by Harts Cyclery and you can enter on the night or by text, call or e mail. It costs £5 and includes food and drink at the post event BBQ.
One for the diary next year and I might even do some training for it!
