    I don't usually chose to ride in the rain. It was hammering down at 7.30 when I left home - normally I wouldn't have gone out. However this was about supporting five club mates on RAB (LeJog in 9 days) and having said I'd be there I wasn't going to let them down. I was piss wet through by the time I hit the meeting point.

    Another friend turned up and we did Domestique duties by taking the front in to a 20mph head wind for 40 miles. It was hard. They wanted 15 average and we delivered.

    Total ride was 90.4, 3700 feet, avg 15. Headwind for 89 out of 90 miles. A tough day in the saddle.
