A hard hill is a hard hill even with a lighter bike

Wheels of Happiness

I rode up San Carlos Heights with a lighter MTB.  I expected lesser effort and huffing and puffing. It was not the case. I could easily do that by shifting to granny gears.  I just used max 32 x 32 gears. Still lung busting and thigh burning effort.  But I did not stop.  The other younger bikers I saw on the road shifted to granny and rested on the first knee bend.

It is the practice, strength, the leg strength and speed that count.  May be the bike but secondary na lang.
