I normally get out at the early hours to avoid the traffic as there are some idiots out there, but my bed was to nice at 6am so 1pm was the new time of departure.
I had planned to meet up with some friends at the halfway point but I had a text while I was out to say the were running late so I may miss them which was a shame as they good give me that morale boost to get home, another boost for my trip home was, I had to pick my wife at 6pm so I couldn't be late.
It was definitely a tougher leg on the way out then on the way even though it looks to be more of an incline on the way home.
I did work hard on the bike, and I managed to burn just shy of 3000 calories, I had workout for me. I did run out of water on the bike so I think im going to put another bottle cage on my bike as I'm only going to go further so im going to need more fluids. I used my new frame bag and put a sports SIS bar in and a gel for the rid which I used at the half way point. They went down easy and were a great assistant to my energy levels. There was a slight head wind on the route, so thinking about it thats probably why the ride out was harder.
The dip shows the half way point which couldn't come quick enough, I wish I'd have taken £1 for a 99 with a flake.
