Not ridden since the start of April, why not try a big ride and hurt myself? Oh, go on then.
Add in hot weather and it being the first ride since I started on a slow carb diet and let’s see what’ll happen. Turns out, I can ride quite well on no breakfast, three mini pork pies and a litre of apple juice (water only for the first hour), and a scone at Dales Bike Centre.

Surface: Road and off-road
