I hope Peters legs are recovering. Mine were hurting in the road race at Barton on Humber last week. I instigated an early break with 2 others and then some more joined us a few laps later. As usual my legs gave out when they started jumping around with a lap to go - I haven't got the race legs, so I let them go and came in 10th or so.
Yesterday (Sat 29th) I rode the Virgin Cyclone Sportive from the north of Newcastle with hard riding Roger Palfreeman. 104 undulating miles out into Northumberland. Its a very popular event with three distances to choose from, all sharing the same start & finish roads, so it was pretty congested (4000 riders!).
As usual we hammered round, with the fastest time I believe, 5hrs 15mins - 20 mph average.
Next Sunday its the White Rose Challenge from Ilkley, so it will be sore legs again. Peter is entered as well.
