Here is my first proper ride, 40 miles in 3 hours. I forgot to take any food though. I won't do that again, I did have a sachet of gel which I used in the last 10 miles and a litre of Lucozade Carb drink that I'd made up, but I ran out after about 30 miles. Some of the hills killed me a bit though. But apart from that, I'm quite pleased, I could probably have gone on for longer if I hadn't run out of stuff. Just wondering what other people think of this as a first ride?
