What a difference 5 Hours Makes – 6th October
Just under 5 hours after I set off for my morning ride I set off to ride the same loop again. Gone was the glorious sunrise, replaced by greyness and steady rain. With no chance of ‘enjoying’ the ride it was a simple case of head down and try and get round the same 15.5 miles loop as fast as I could.
The final 2 miles were clear of ‘school run’ traffic and I flew back into the city and got my fastest time on that loop, 57m 59s… I was soaked, but happy!
