Today, I joined the Samamtb club for a ride to Kanweyeol Mountain near Eonyang.
The mountain is is 1,100 meters high! I didn't know this when I turned up for the ride. So with a sense of foreboding we started up with myself bravely guarding the rear (b/c I was too knacked too keep up). Fortunally various club members stayed behind to encourage me.
Once we got to the top it was all worth it
Quick break (well for me, not for them) for a snack, take in the view
Then down a rocky gravel forest access road until we met the main road. Then we hit a small uphill section. I didn't know how far the section was and my legs were spent from the climb so it was agony. But it was only a small section and to my delight we were then at the top of another mountain on the main road with 10 minutes of switchbacks ahead of us ... yeee .. haaa ....
After that it was a mainly flat section back to the carpark. Halfway back we came upon the making of a giant bonfire. I would have loved to have seen this go up.
When I got back to Ulsan, I went to my health club and had a spa which was ever so relaxing. Then back home. An hour later I had a snooze on my bed and work up at 5am Monday !
