Ahem .. so another log holiday
All is good ... I feel totally prepared
. Last night I did another night ride .. 115 miles - I cycled to the start and then afterwards to the train and then on to a mate's house, so I notched up 180 miles. Legs feel great (bit of cramp ... could be an issue n the race) and I could have gone on and then started running, so was a good weekend for my confidence.
I'm tapering now (2 weeks to race) .. but I'll squeeze in some mid distance runs this week and do a long swim at the weekend.
Last night's night ride was the total opposite of my one last month (well they were both still brilliant) ... the other had 7 people and they were all club cyclists, quite quiet. This one was roughly 1200 people, free, wonderfully "not really" organized, full of totally regular and club riders, weird bikes, fairy lights round frames, really good vibe. You cycle from London to the sea up in Suffolk, have a dip or crash out on the beach, eat at the cafe ... get home somehow. That somehow was quite interesting for me, with about 50 cyclists getting chucked off the little local train, (health and safety of course) and the police being called! Quite amusing, apart from the fact that it meant an extra 30 mile ride to the bigger station. Great ride though .. called the Dunwich Dynamo ... great website.
