Departing north from Moorabbin (YMMB) on a warm summer's day, in a very tired rental Arrow, I was cleared to climb in class C over the busy approach to Melbourne.

"ABC, cleared to Eildon Weir; climb 7,500."

[shortly thereafter ...]

"ABC, maintain best rate of climb."

"Best rate? I'm pedaling as fast as I can."
