Making a comeback to mountain biking after more than 2 years of inactivity by going to Sintra on a day with temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Centigrade before 11AM is not the brightest of ideas. Climbing Sintra is not an easy task on the best of days when I’m in top shape, let alone on a scorching day like today…
After a measly 10Km into the mountain I had to turn back and (after a substantial amount of rest) fly downhill to my car. But that part, at least, was a lot of fun! :-)
Lots of pampering the muscles will ensue (i.e. sprawling in the couch with the laptop or a good book).
