2Old: not two consecutive hours you muppet! Mind you BA thought the sun dried tomato look might be an improvement
Electric bikes might well be something for the future, for the moment he is OK with 60 hilly miles, provided it is not day after day on fully laden touring bikes. Current plan for next year is to drive the carbon bikes down to the French Alps and do some of the big tour climbs. We have done most of the Pyrennean ones and Ventoux (3 times!) so want to complete the set of HC monsters. As far as ultras go 30 to 50 miles is probably OK, but no more hundreds, although he insists I carry on.
Don't know how I'm going to manage the HM next weekend - haven't run further than 10k since the end of May and not run at all for over 5 weeks
Good Luck anyone racing this weekend - I'll be back in the UK next Tuesday if I don't pop in any sooner.
