Cheers, I do kind of enjoy rides like that as long as I have the right gear. Borrowed a large saddle bag from a mate to carry loads of food and winter gear, glad I did even though it was heavy. The worst bit for me is the mudguards though, they seem to act like sails, particularly above 30kph, and pull you back. I was glad I'd put them on though otherwise I would have been covered!carton said:Chapeau. What a beast. I did a sixth and a fourth of that, respectively, in somewhat similar conditions but with only a rain cape, and I skipped my recovery ride this morning because I was feeling a bit Luis Angel Mate when I woke up / came back to life.King Boonen said:245km distance and 4150m climbed in what was basically November conditions in the West of Scotland. Driving headwinds, constant rain, I was in full winter kit for over half of the ride.
Thanks Just a route I'd had in my head for a while I fancied giving a go. I had to postpone from Saturday to Sunday. Saturday was sunny and calm, Sunday... Wasn'trick james said:
