Bristolsparks and Razor, take care and rest up, recovery is important.
Good running Buttercup.
I survived the sportive, the rain and wind accompanied me, but the rain was not too heavy but the low clouds meant you could not see the top of the hills we ended up in. The evil organisers put in Whitedown Lane which is a long windy and narrow 18% hill which I knew would be too much so I walked up it, but that was the only one.
45 miles done as I missed a couple of signs and went the wrong way (should have been 50). Just over 3000 feet of climbing. So quite happy although the body is a bit sore, mainly a grazed and bruised elbow and arm, as I had an embarrassing fall. I clipped in after a stop and managed to over balance and due to the wet road just went flying in front of about 10 men, who did stop and check that I was OK and I even failed to swear which is most unusual.
The bike will get washed tomorrow as I had to get home, shower then go out to do the weekly shopping.
