The importance of rehydration
#1
It's March, i've been out on my mtb a grand total of twice since the last Sketchy trip to Wales and only once on the road bike AND i've signed up for a 65 mile ride this sunday with Bordercolliesam. So last weekend i dragged my ass out and thought i'd put in a 50 mile ride to blow out the cobwebs for good. 25 miles to the inlaws, a short break and 25 miles back. Job done. Well, not quite. What in fact happened was i did the 25 miles there (mostly up hill) had a few bottles of Stella and put the bike in the boot of my other halfs car.....

My shoulder is good thanks, remarkable even given what it went through. Plate and pins out in November and no real problems since. Bit skinny as i've not been able to do as much weights but it'll come back. Mind you with all this road riding i'm supposed to be doing i'll probably need to start on the weight gain, or more Stella maybe.

I'll see you both in Wales again! Ben has added me to the definite's list since he locked the thread. Catch up then if not before.

That is in fact good news. I was refering to the ride we've already done, i thought the Kent Sportive was closer to the 85 mile mark. Only 75, we'll be round the course in 30 mins... Big Grin
