...I was cycling this morning and had cause to go up a small but irratating hill on the way into Stock village. A few months ago I would have walked up it but now I am riding up it with a full 4 pannier load with no problems...although I am usually knackered at the top and take a breather near the church. It's a hill where I see lot's of cyclist's dismounting and walking up the hill, it's not abnormal to see people do that on this hill.....BUT... Today i saw a cyclist walking DOWN the hill!!...a quick glance confirmed that no flat tyres were to blame and a the customary nod and hello signalled all was well..... ...walking DOWN a hill....hmmm...that's a new one on me....maybe I should try it one day...looks like I'm missing something.
