About to head into the hills around Macc/Buxton, hoping to get 30-40miles in - my first proper road ride in seventeen-odd years... If it goes well then I'll hopefully bump it up over the next few weeks to see if I can manage this (I know I'd survive, but I realise there's etiquette to road riding and requiring everyone else to bring a book and lights for the second half may breach these, I'll look into it).

I also realise you don't need to hear this blow by blow but it is helpful for me to say it out loud - good for the motivation etc. Hope you don't mind! :wink:

Oh look, here's the storm just arrived... :roll:

D'oh! I thought about it too :roll: You dodged a bullet though, it's proper grim out there! Cut it to 25miles, couple of big climbs (to my legs anyway!) and a good drenching, plus a terrifying tankslapper at 37.9mph. All good manly stuff and although a bit slow on the climbs it hasn't wiped me out, don't actually feel too drained at all, so there's hope for me yet! :D
