I Believe In Myself

For those of you who don't know Shrewsbury,
this is an artist's impression of Wyle Cop:

And in this photograph,
notice how people are struggling to walk up the hill.
If it was enlarged we might
see that they are wearing crampons:




And so, as I approached Wyle Cop on my bike this evening I muttered something along the lines of:

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

My legs didn't pay attention, kept pushing the pedals round,
whilst inside my head all I could hear was this: 


Ican'tdothis
Ihaven'tcycledupheresincehavingchildren
I'mpastit
mybodyisawreck
andthere'snowayIamgoingtomakeit
andwhatismorethisispotentiallyhumiliating
ImeanImightgososlowthatIjustfalloversideways
andwho'dbetheretopickmeup?



By which stage I'd reached the top.

  1. it's great going down though, you can take your feet off the pedals and get halfway up Foregate.

  2. I'm not unknown, it's Rennie Parker who just posted that. Drat these formats.
