52miles at 18+. Enjoyable race to the cafe stop for the last mile or so. Enough people going for it to require a double sprint at the end, one to get on an attack after leading them in and another to break people up the incline to a junction!
Then some attacks off the front on the way back, dropped a wheel up a slight incline which allowed a group to get down the road a bit. As I had less distance to go than everyone else I worked to get them back on taking some long harder pulls, didn't quite manage it but nice to work for someone else

An easy 36 miles for me. Still getting over my operation and not being able to do anything for the past 5 weeks. But I will be back mile munching over the big hills! Soon hopefully, it always amazes me that it doesn't matter how fit you are, or how often you exercise, have a bit of time off and you seem to lose it all. I've a good few thousand miles of hills in my legs this year so hopefully it'll come back fairly quickly.

My personal experience has been that it comes back quickly to the level you were at before, it's improvements I have to work at.

Hopefully soon you'll be smashing out the miles

Did etape Caledonia yesterday. Came 147th with a time of 4.03.39, 4245ft climbing, average speed 20.9mph, 18th in my age group. At 54 I’m happy with that.

Yeah hopefully, I did 40 miles today and felt great. My physio told me once that an athlete who regularly trains can have ten days off without losing any fitness, but on the 11th day it plummets right down. But comes back fairly quickly. It's just the pain getting back to fitness!
