    Eat, eat and eat. And drink, drink.

    My memories? It hurt - mainly because I didn't eat enough.

    And the distance

    And the hills

    All I can tell you is don't jump on a fast wheel to early, you sometimes find you will pass them about 30 miles down the road as they've blown a gasket.

    Oh, and if you find a group of riders, don't expect any of them have any idea of riding in a group
     
  5. You have spent £10,954.73 on your cycling kit - enjoy it to the full!

    Keep it steady and be safe.
