I had the misfortune of 'bonking' this afternoon (not the sexual kind). I am getting in some long training rides as I am off to Egypt on Friday and will (hopefully) be riding from Cairo to Hurghada and back next week. I have managed 312 miles from Sunday - Tuesday, but today I could only manage another 64 miles before giving up. I tried an energy bar (Cliff) but it didn't seem to give me the impetus to carry on. Hopefully I will feel rested tomorrow and try and get in another century. Also wolfed down 4 bananas and a bag of dried apricots to no avail.
