As my final preparation for the ‘Big Red Randonnee’ I rode the Marin Rough Ride yesterday. The Marin is a 70km loop around the hills of Radnorshire. It was incredibly tough with mile after mile of moorland track. If you came to a junction you almost invariably had to turn uphill!I completed the route in 4hrs 17mins, and was exhausted, but I believe I was bettered by Carla. Despite turning her ankle two days before the event, and having a foot blackened by bruising, she toughed it out to complete the route in 5hrs 30mins. Well done or what?
So it’s rest and recovery rides for me this week, then the big one. If you still haven’t sponsored me yet, what’s the problem? You can do it here.
