Used to ride longer distances quite regularly, metric centuries and even the odd double metric century nearly every weekend, as well as 30-40km round trip to work and back. But the last year or so I have changed jobs and suffered from a severe lack of motivation and haven't been doing much riding except to work which is only about a 5-6km round trip. Anyway, I received an email about a 115km ride that my local cycling club was organising and decided to go along and try and complete it. I had ridden the route before so knew roughly what I was in for. I was still strong on the flat and downhill but couldn't climb as well as I used to, especially later into the journey. Anyway I completed it without any dramas, though I was pretty stuffed by the end of it! I surprised myself. Even rode my bike to work on Monday!
