Re: Climbing and Winter Stuff

It was great. It kicked my ass... (all that good cooking and holiday time and playing with stoves and not riding my bicycle(s) hundreds of miles a month...) Sure blame it on the stoves :D I would imagine climbing muscles are not the same as cycling muscles or are they the same? Nice of your to forc...
