Where is your preferred eating place in Ashford?
Was a bit driech out there- bad enough on the Honda. Chapeau! Next weekend for me, hopefully (wind looking rather brutal tomorrow).
The International Train Station. Nice and big place, never busy. Food is not the best but good enough and not expensive. Decent bogs too.
Febs done and dusted again in the company of @Supersuperleeds who's wheel I needed after the second cafe stop. @tallliman also joined us for his metric century
103.5 miles 6.45.42 moving time 3631 feet of elevation
Anstey out and over the Trent at Swarkstone and a loop of villages of south Derbyshire around Hilton to suzies cafe at Hatton . Back to Loughborough along the Trent valley via Weston ,Aston on Trent ,Shardlow ,Kegworth where we parted company with @tallliman . Me and @Supersuperleeds headed for our favorite cafe nice pie at Old Dalby via East Leake ,Costock ,Willoughby on the Wolds . Coffee and cake consumed and then the run home . I was feeling it now so drafted @Supersuperleeds for a while .Home via Barrow and Quorn with a few extra loops as @Supersuperleeds needed some extra as he was going for 200km
Great ride despite the unforecast rain with great company . It is easier to do the miles with company
What @13 rider said. Though per my GPS I might have done a little bit more than 200km
Seems one second I was riding through Leicestershire then the next I was in Canada and then back to Leicestershire, I was that fast @13 rider didn't even see me disappear. Interestingly Strava fixed the anomaly on upload
Oh and I should add that was my 50th consecutive month of doing an imperial century, though don't get any easier.
Also done. Salisbury and back. Bit slower than last month's, but rather hillier and a crosswind all the way (wind direction didn't suit going anywhere for a tailwind on the return). 73 consecutive months of tons.
Sitting here eating my brekkie getting ready to go. As usual a poor nights kip, but hopefully once I'm going I'll wake up a bit. Back in about 8 hours or so...
Have a great day.
Hope the day is in your favour.
Also up early to bag another ton and hoping for weather ad good as yesterday's glorious climes.
I'm back. That was really tough going today. Misty for the first 25 miles and 1 degree C, light rain for 10 miles at 4 degrees, a glimmer of sunshine then cloudy with the wind picking up. Still, February is in the bag, and I'll update the challenge post when I wake up.
Well done that man great effort .
Great stuff matey.
Only another 10 more for the year to go
That's me done my ton. I deliberately got to the PCC Reliability Ride early so I could get a few slow miles in. Did the RR and went for a slow recovery after. Joining that all together its a ton
