Here's a vid made by a couple of guys who are riding the Brisbane CityCycle bikes up climbs in all the big public events. It's a good chuckle. Not for me though, the climb in the video is 13% in places :)
Indeed I did. And I've gotta say, it did it with aplomb. Such a plush ride for the conditions. It did everything quite easily - except perhaps some of the speedier sections ;) If I don't come up with a [cough] more appropriate ride this year [interpret as you wish] I may just do the repeat.
