Climbin’ the Canyons

Even with a crappy headcold, I went on a short ride out on Mulholland in Calabasas/Agoura Hills this last weekend (Lat/Long 34.1041, -118.7260).

So out on Mulholland on a lovely Saturday afternoon, I have to share the road with not only motorists and motorcyclists vrooming their way through the canyons, but entrepreneurial photographers that take everybody’s pictures in hopes that someone will go to their website to purchase them. Oddly, you have to email the guy to get a quote.

Oh hai there weird dudes with cameras. Yes, I see you there.

So I’m going UP some switchbacks. Granted, they are only maybe 5 – 7 % grade but I’m going SLOW. So it’s a little embarrassing to be trudging up the hillside (after having just unzipped my jersey to reveal my sportsbra only a few minutes earlier, NOT KNOWING there were a slew of dudes who would be taking my pic) and they just kept taking pics/staring. We bantered a bit and I finally got off my ass and took off.

Might as well throw the anime/V/peace sign while I continue UP UP UP at 5 MPH

Well, I’m pleased because not only do I look slender, but because just a few minutes prior I was considering unzipping my sports bra for extra air flow. Sure glad I DID NOT DO THAT.
