Going Up - Grimpeur Style

My Tempo cap  - the Grimpeur way!

Grimpeur - French for Climber.

Two weeks ago, I successfully conquered Mt. Seymour climbing the 12.5kms distance in just over an hour. It was so hot I took off my helmet and turned my Tempo cycling cap with the the brim backwards - grimpeur style. The linen/cotton fabric did a fine job of wicking my perspiration. Also, the new 100% cotton wicking band kept the sweat out of my eyes. And the brim help shield part of my neck from the scorching sun. My practical cap turned extraordinary practical. 

I can't say that I'm a good grimpeur but for 12.5kms on that hot Sunday... I felt like one!
