Sure, I’d received an email about this ride… and completely forgot about it. So when another reminder came in a few days ago I decided to take part in Evans Cycles RIDE-IT Medway ride. Suitable for many rather than few the ride had three courses – 31, 51 and 82 miles in distance. I had about six hours until our social event in Essex, so I decided to ride the long one.
Perhaps it was late start due to a few glasses of wine with friends last night. Or temperature that by 11:30 when I was ready to go was over 30 degrees Celsius. Total ride time came in at 7h 31min for 115 miles. The last 10 were a bit of a challenge, to be honest. Not quite as I expected.
