Tackling Divis

As usual the route was decided democratically by the riders who turned up - if it was a different group the vote and route would've been different. My vote was a little flatter, but it was bright and sunny, so why not tackle Divis! Plus it gave Neil the chance to lose his Divis virginity.

Five of us crossed town and up the horseshoe. Nitemare took us on a weaving route round the Co Antrim back roads, taken at a strong pace before pointing back up Divis Road. The climb is never easy and with a headwind it was harder, but the reward was spectacular views. I never checked who got the polka dot Jersey, but last I saw Bones was in the lead.
We descended back to the cafe for a caffeine shot and politically incorrect conversation, before dropping back in to town to watch the tour. Bones decided to make the most of the weather and do an extra hour - fair play. Really well done to Neil on a great ride - "If you want to be a lion, you must train with lions".
