Ride Fast Climb Hard!

With weather conditions atrocious, high winds, heavy rain and flooded roads once more there was only one thing for it!! To ride fast and climb hard. Training with LH again we set off on a fast flat stretch of road and were soon sitting on 25/26 mph for a brisk 20 minute warm up before easing up in poor conditions. It was impossible to sit in due to the amount of water blinding you with spray! After almost an hour of surges, easy riding and the odd brief chat it was time to finish with a series of climbs made all the more taxing into a tough wind! After 1 hour 10 minutes and 22 miles of riding, average speed 17.3 mph it was time for coffee and a debrief! Drenched with cold hands & feet it was time to it...............
