    ... over 2,200m or 7,200 ft of climbing as well as many long descents. That makes a very long day. Usually when we are climbing we run an average of 3-6 mph depending on the steepness, so a 40km (25 mile) climb can be many hours in the saddle. This road was beautiful with spectacular scenery. It was much chillier and there was drizzle at times and some wind as well. The downhills were spectacular although when it is drizzling I go slower due to the cold and just making sure my ...

    ... Here you can see the whole of Quito, from the wealthy settlements to the shanty towns on the hill. It also lays into perspective how the city is 42km in length as it is built between the mountain ranges.
    We were exhausted after a long day on our feet, we headed back to the hostel and decided to meet up for drinks with the guys we had met in Colombia. We headed out to this really awesome pub called Dirty Sancez, that had a really great vibe and reggaton music. The evening ...

    ... which of course meant we would have to return walking uphill. Just before we reach the main shopping centre we pass through Parque La Carolina, so called because of the large aircraft sitting in the middle of it, called Carolina. The park is busy, being a Saturday. Kids play everywhere, there are tennis courts, volleyball courts, basketball courts and they are all being used. The sun is shining, and when the sun shines here ...
