Time for a little joyful event focus

I mention the old London – Paris bike ride for charity (The Big Issue) from time to time but now I have to get a bit serious and do some fundraising.  The training is coming on “ish”.  Today I cracked the beast that is Pier Hill, that which has defeated me a couple of time already.  The trouble is, once at the summit (I am not sure of the altitude but it is but a nipple in the mammography of hills) I had to rip out the earphones blasting “now very irritating motivational dance music” like a maddened patient hooked up to life support machinery and then concentrate very hard to keep pedalling and not collapse.

What I will do when I am faced with an actual, real, never-ending hill in the heat of mid-July I do not know.  Suspect strongly that weeping will be involved.

Anyway, I quickly espied a scenic vista that I thought I would share with you.  Cunningly I could also stop to artfully frame said shot and my heart and lungs could have a second out from pounding and burning.  This is what I managed.

Obviously the lack of oxygen to my brain had taken its effect...

Fortunately I had also had the presence of mind to take a snap when cycling in a more civilised fashion along the front. 

Nice as this is, I am starting to wonder why the pics are coming up so small?
