So excited!
« on: 17 April, 2021, 02:48:57 pm »
This morning at around 2am I’m setting off to Honiton to do one of Ian’s rides and then cycle home afterwards. It’s going to be around 280miles give or take. I can’t wait, it’s been over a year since I’ve done over 70miles and it’s the biggest thing I’ve missed due to the pandemic. Even better news, two weeks later I’ll be cycling out to Exeter to do the old roads, 350ish miles!!!!

Hope you manage to crack the climb out of Lynmouth!
Careful repeated reading of the detail on your front hub will be necessary, as will ignoring the cars revving or stalling behind you.
After that you can enjoy more scenery along Devon's north coast.

I set off at 2am, didn’t even get to liskeard. I had terrible indigestion and ended up being sick. Had to turn around. Put me in a bad mood all day. Serves me right for eating a large dominoes pizza and drinking beer the night before. Lesson learned.
