the cobble wobble

my neck of the woods was a hive of cycling activity last sunday.  not only was there a cyclo-cross race taking place in bristol but just a few miles down the road in frome the famous cobble wobble returned with over 200 riders and thousands of spectators making it easily the largest high climb time trial event in the south west of england, maybe the country?  what separates the cobble wobble from the average hill climb is the location and course which is not only entirely cobbled but works its way up a narrow street overseen by 17th century buildings on either side making for an exciting contrast between the relative new of the event and the old english vibe of the architecture and surroundings.  i will state here and now that this will be one of my goals for 2013, it just looks too good to miss.
