Ah-ha! Got up this morning and the sun was shining. The forecast said rain by 10 but I thought I’d take a chance anyway. Guess what? No rain – hooray!! But then I did double the distance I had planned to do which meant I was knackered by the time I was three quarters of the way round the route. Never mind, still good fun. Well, good fun apart from the saddle that is. My sit bones (thanks to Tatia for that phrase) are in agony and I had to half ride, half stand for the last 5 miles. So I have given up trying to break the saddle in and have ordered a new Specialized Gel Saddle . With luck it will be here by the weekend, if not the mtb saddle is defiantly going on until it does arrive!
Distance: 18.8 miles, Av speed: 14.1 mph
