600 miles... is the number my odometer ticked over too today.

Only commuting to work, so it's taken about 5 months to get to that mark, but i'm sure that is close to a personal best for the year.

2 weeks off apart from an e-bike ride on holiday, 750m of climb in 16 miles and barely broke a sweat, things are the future!!!

So back with a bang- 2 rides today, 45 miles in Yorkshire with a mate, hills definitely my nemesis! Then 25miles of chain gang when I got back, pre-warned them I would be off the back early due to previous ride but they wouldn't let me go til the 20mile point! Broken now!

58 miles, 18.9mph average. No intermediates so ended up with the fast group. Only 6 started and 4 at the halfway point so no hiding in the group! Dropped myself at 58 miles and called in the support car, been through 4 litres of electrolytes/water at that point and both bottles were empty so best I stopped in the heat
