It is only a week to go until the London to Southend bike ride and I have been unable to get precious little training done due to the never ending rain. When I woke up this morning, I groaned loudly as I could hear the rain still coming down. However, by the time I had drunk a cup if coffee, the rain had started to leave off. And as I was about to be kicked off of the computer because my wife had some urgent work to deal with, I decided to hell with it, I am going out anyway. And if it rains, I get wet. Simples.
I am so glad I did go out. There was only one very short shower and I had a fantastic ride (aren’t they all). I only got in 30 miles when I would have liked to have done 40, but you don’t always get what you want.
