Reaching the summit of Stelvio was the sweetest victory πŸ† I'd spent the week prior struggling with Acute Mountain Sickness - taking 2 flights of stairs to breakfast every morning genuinely felt harder than my Ironman! But I refused to leave Bormio without making this climb, so off I set in my easiest gear with zero expectations about how long it would take. As the road got higher, the air got thinner. And although every cell in my body was objecting, somehow I managed to keep the pedals turning πŸš΄πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I think I cried a few tears of happiness at the summit, where I met the charming @ermanno.leonardi, who composed and captured this beautiful memory for me 😊 (Damn I earned that trophy!!!)

Everyone's busy storing their good wheels until next summer and I'm busy breaking mine in 😝 I'm keeping them on Ruby as long as possible* for 2 reasons: 1️⃣ They make me want to be out riding, ALL THE TIME 2️⃣ They make me want to be a vastly better cyclist Neither of these is a bad thing! β˜ΊοΈπŸš΄πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘Š I don't save anything else for a special occasion, so why start now? * I'm also a British weather realist - I have my old Fulcrum Racing 5 / Conti GP 4 seasons wheel set ready to switch in when the weather gets truly horrid πŸŒ§β„οΈπŸŒͺ [Breaking in new kit, Oct '17] β€’ #blondeonabike #adventure #bikelife #bikeporn #cycling #cyclist #instacycle #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #ride #stravacycling #fitgirl #athlete #garminedge #endurance #swissside #hadron #roadbike #roadcycling #specialized #teamsky #powertap at London Borough of Bromley

Smiling like this on an 11% incline? Damn right I am 😁 After arriving back to the U.K. in a pretty rubbish physical state, I committed to 2 things 4 weeks ago: 1️⃣ A strictly limited training load (barely any running, only a few hours a week cycling) 2️⃣ Doing all my Physio homework (left MCL, left ankle cyst, right meniscus) So THIS mid-climb smile is because I'm nearly pain-free πŸ€ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈFinal Physio check-up today with @blueleafphysiotherapy then let the training and re-gaining of much lost bike fitness begin!!! πŸŽ‰πŸš΄πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’¨ [Bayley's Hill, London, Oct '17] β€’ #blondeonabike #adventure #bikelife #bikeporn #cycling #cyclist #instacycle #lovecycling #outsideisfree #queenofthemountain #ride #hillclimb #stravacycling #fitgirl #athlete #addidas #louisgarneau #endurance #rapha #roadbike #roadcycling #specialized at Bayley's Hill
