What a gorgeous day! But what a ‘suffer-fest’ too! I grovelled home after doing my biggest distance of the year so far – 146kms. So why didn’t I go round the block to make it up to 150? Hmm, I was well knackered and probably only made it in home in compus mentis mode thanks to Don’s Rich Tea biscuits – thanks, Don! Other than the suffering, it was a truly brilliant day and well done to Nick + son who rode even further than me – back to Haslemere.

RouteThe ride started in Chobham, but the image shows my total trip. For a gpx of the route, go to http://www.strava.com/activities/128522010

  1. I certainly will, Bob, but not this Wednesday and probably not next.

  2. I like the stats you get with your Strava app Mark. It’s no wonder you were a bit weary I think you were averaging >14mph and >800 meters climbing. Sunday which you found easier was just under 13 mph but >1200 meters.
    Hope you join us again – not just because we get the pictures and this write up.
