The Gordon Street Hill

Almost everyday I bike (ok in winter I walk) up the hill to the university. Earlier this year some wonderfully encouraging signs appeared on hydro poles lining the bike lane.

"Keep going!" and "You're almost there!"

Well, eventually those disappeared, but this week were replaced with several signs with slogans such as the one below (top sign):

As a thank-you to this wonderful anonymous sign leaver, my housemate and I added our own addition to these signs (bottom one).

Interestingly, I think the trudge up this hill is much like academia. Sometimes you just don't want to do it. But then, something clicks and you are almost like a stunt biker (ugh almost).
