20 miles 2:30
Six days of solitary riding ended tonight with another fast ride with me chasing Simon. One day I will wait for him...one day...Again it was from the door and after 20 minuets of road we were swooping along bridleways and along a lot of foot paths-the runner in me always feels very guilty during those moments. We crossed the M1 at least 4 times, negotiated suicide bridge, discussed the merits of Julia Bradbury, got covered in mud, discovered 2 new trails and had no rain. A great evenings entertainment!
The main problem that I'm coming across with this challenge so far is the extreme amount of dirty kit that constantly needs sorting, lights that need charging and a belly that needs feeding. What I'm really enjoying is that everyday is feeling like a weekend with a bit of work in the middle. It's also great catching up with fellow 'challengers'-thanks guys!
