Wed June 12 farm-x. I see your hill and I raise you HILLS

I recognize that this route isn't for everyone (possibly anyone). Posting here because there is a small amount of trail between the excruciating, tedious uphill road grinds. 6:05 at the church (which I'll skip if there's no interest, so post if you're in!)

That looks like a fun little sufferfest. I would join you if I wasn't allergic to Wednesday mornings. Enjoy!!

Mashby, I'm interested and would hope to keep you company but that makes for too long a ride for this hombre on a Wednesday morning.
If I were to accompany you, I'd be late for work, and probably harshly judged....

You make it sound so appealing! :P

Sorry, Mark. Hills are gross, unless one has a reason to train—in which case they're still gross but at least the pain isn't pointless.

I aim to ride the regular old Farm road ride tomorrow: pedal slowly, smell the seaweed etc. I'm deep in the throes of some sort of fitness regression period, the parameters of which will only emerge in retrospect.

Mark, do you sometimes feel like ...

Don't worry, I'm your friend, even on hills. But, not tomorrow because I have a recurring 6 am teleconference on Wednesdays. I never miss these because I'm able to participate from my home office with only my pyjama top on.

... and out of view of my laptop's onboard camera, I sometimes like to do this ...

p.s. This is a repeat giphy, which I only share again because: a) it's been ages since Claire has scolded me, and b) Ms. Tyre is out of town and wasn't able to grab my hand before I hit the "Submit" button.

Mark I’m sorry that all the other cross riders are so lame and I commend you on your patience in dealing with their whining.

If I could I’d ride this with you since it looks awesome.

What they lack in grit Rob, they more than make up in truly horrifying gifs. #unsee

Why didn't you tell me Jill's away and we are now allowed to recycle the best gifs from the past?
I like how Johnny makes his appearance in this one...

I'll not share this position on the farm team workout with the farm team. Have fun on the flat!
