SUNDAY RIDE - 23/07
A second attempt at the route on 02/07.
I'm going to take it fairly easy and lead a mid-speed & distance pan flat route on Sunday, via the tea room in Blackmore, for anyone who wants to join. I'll need to reserve the right to drop out before or during the ride if my leg rehab isn't going to plan though. Make sure you know you can manage the ride if you're going to join.
Departure time: Usual 8:30am
Length: 80km / 50mi
Avg Speed: 28Km/h (33kph rolling speed) / 17mph (20mph)
Stealing from the policy Guido put up for his ride:
have the route loaded in your garmin as you may have to find your way back home (I might be the one left behind if my leg explodes)
have spare parts tubes, a pump, a phone, and a card so that you can deal with mechanicals
Bring along enough food for eating during the ride, this is super important to remember if you're mostly riding 40 miles or less (you'll bonk after 2 or so hours if you don't take on about 2-300cals per hour during the ride, you can't tough out bonking or train to prevent it, you just need to eat http://cyclinguphill.com/energy-consumption-whilst-cycling/2)
Look forward to seeing you out there!
