Climb Clint Hills

On Sunday 4th of May I joined the Wolverhampton Wheeler Cycling Club on their Classic ride to Clint Hills via Kinver. I had no idea what I was letting myself in for. My trusty B’TWIN T7 (Whitney) had been fully upgraded to 105 specifications and the last thing done was a new 105 chain, Bottom Bracket and Crank. So with my last 50 miles under my belt I said why not?

Heck those hills are steep!!! I was once more the last man at the end of the group to ride in at the cafe on the peak of the last hill. What a view!

I was also mostly the last man on the way home too. Yet  I was able to get home with 64 miles under the belt.

Saw this on the way home, just outside Wolverhampton built up area. Nice of them to pose for me.
