Sunday January 3rd 2016
After a day off to recover from my 3km ascent on new year's day, I was ready to ride again. I like Sundays in Parque Metropolitano, when cars can't use the roads and cyclists converge in extreme numbers. I usually try to go early before it gets too crowded but today I was late, setting off just before midday, just when it reaches saturation point. The gradients seemed piddling after the HC climb up to Farellones, and I had a great ride up to Mapulemu and down to La Piramide.
