That's impressive mental toughness!!
Ric - fair play then for that speed at 44. I've been cycling to work for 25 years on and off and haven't got near that on an MTB, even back in my early days when I was MTB racing! Used to regularly get close to the hour for the 23M trip on my road bike cycling to work from High Wycombe to Staines, but that was pretty flat.
parkrun for me today at the Rye. The wet route is a fair bit quicker, but still a few tight turns! Worked out OK with the two way traffic as well. Reasonably happy with 2nd and 18:29. probably should have gone under 18:20, but eased up a fair bit in the last k when I realised sub 18 was out, and 3rd place had dropped back quite a lot. Slight twinge in the injury after just to remind me it is still there, but nothing too untoward and it was good to be "racing" again.
Slightly belated good luck to Dean and Seb for today, good luck to Stevie for tomorrow and for Philip and Dachs at Finchley tomorrow. Anyone else racing?
