#mycyclingweekend - Get up those hills!

This #mycyclingweekend we want to see you climbing! Send us photos of your local or most favourite inclines and you could win some road.cc swag!

Seeing as the sun's out, it's time to pretend. Find your nearest hill, whack on your thinnest jersey, close your eyes and imagine you're on the side of a mountain in the south of France.

That's the dream, right? Well if it is, then it's time to share it with us.

Show us your local Mont Ventoux. Share that hill you race yourself up every day with us. We want to see them.

Certainly, your hills don't have to be as spectacular as Instagram user mi.masl's, really anything will do.

That's not to say we can't appreciate the beauty in Italian mountain passes or the Col d'Izoard featured in the photo below.

 

 

 

 

We don't have any Cols near us here at road.cc. We do have some humble but rather lovely local hills which we ride regularly. Here's a little teaser:

Of course, though, we know that riding's not all about testing ourselves in the mountains. Some of us fancy ourselves Mark Cavendish-a-likes and some of us live in places where the hills really aren't a thing.

Not to worry if your area isn't vertically endowed, we love all #mycylingweekend photos. Just send them our way!

You know the score. Simply upload your shot to Instagram or Twitter with the #mycyclingweekend hashtag included in the caption and you'll be in with a shot of winning some road.cc socks!

    These would be ideal for security in the garage, and out and about for our bikes lost two in the past.

    But if it doesn't look like a car's going to pull up, you find someone in the same-coloured top as you and make them give you their bike.

    Agreed on that, he was definitely part of my first week plans! Not to mention my French riders team - that is in tatters without Le Coq!

    I'm sure that the reason the Belgian team didn't take him is so that he doesn't take the crown from a Belgian.
