I set out on the club ride hoping it wouldn't be too silly as my legs were still very tired from riding and walking during the week . Well it WAS a bit silly as our leader likes hills and up we went - three of the hardest ones in the area before I'd even woken up. So much for breaking my legs in gently Then he decides to try some new roads which turned into farm tracks really - you know - grass up the middle, gravel and sand everywhere, to the extent that, in deep sand, I had a "mild" loss of control and had a painful brush with some nettles....... Finally the Cake Stop - but only scones - AND they ran out It was getting hot now and water bottles were emptying quite well. He led us up a 3 arrow hill, then took a wrong turning to drop us pretty well back at the bottom - so up we went again to get it right Finally we are getting near home - my legs are shot and I'm hot and tired and my bottles are all empty My computer says 79 miles when it happened............ ...........I was abducted by aliens and MADE (yes MADE) to ride round the block until I'd ridden the full 80 miles. Aliens are really very very cruel. They said they'd be back to for more "examinations". What should I be prepared for ?
