I cycled the furthest I've ever cycled today!

102 miles (on my own), I'm pretty chuffed:biggrin:

I did a 34ish mile loop out from my house three times, stopping there to refill bottles and grab a snack each time I passed.
I must say it was the most I've ever suffered on my bike:evil:
I was fine and really enjoying it up until about the 80 mile mark when my legs started to ache and the wind picked up slightly. Up Ditchling Beacon (the best climb I know of around here) for the third time was painful, and from there down into Brighton and home I was absolutely freezing (shivering like mad!) as I only had a short sleeve jersey on:sad: At about 4 miles out I suddenly felt completely drained and couldn't get above about 12mph...that was the hardest bit. I was almost too weak to turn the key in the front door:blush:
After some food and a shower I feel fine again and quite proud of myself:tongue:
Next time I will try to eat a bit better/more as I'm sure that contributed to my poor last few miles. And I definitely need to invest in a decent windproof that will fit in my jersey pocket!

Good going Joe, it will be one ride that will stay in your mind for a long time. The next time you do a 'ton' will be easier for sure......................well at least I hope it will!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well done, Joe! That was a bloody great effort. ;)
They become addictive, so get your map out and plan away.
And stock up on the correct food supplies to avoid 'bonking'. :sad:

Well, you have been busy ... Clappers Lane too, on top of it all. I think I have done 'ton's in my youth, when there were no computers, I had to guesstimate...but all that's behind me now ;). BTW I used to work in Portslade, in Franklin Road. Small world...
Indeed:tongue:
Do you know of any other climbs around these parts by the way?
