So, 'Rode my Age' plus a lot on Saturday.
You might have seen some or all of the Tour De France stage 1 in Yorkshire, Northern England on July 5th. Well, that was the route on Saturday 12th.
Beautiful day, beautiful countryside, beautiful hills - but 3 painful ones. Cray, Buttertubs and Grinton Moor. About 3 miles at 1:10 apiece. Each of which had a glorious descent to balance the pain! New max of 54mph!
Apart from these, mainly rolling smooth roads with short climbs from time to time that could be tackled by standing for a minute.
I put the softer saddle from my folder onto the bike - and now I think it's staying there! Heavier, bulkier and so much more comfortable!
I'm feeling very pleased.
