I couldn’t let Phill have more miles than me at this point in the challenge, although I think we’ve both surpassed where we though we would be halfway through the month.
I decided to get back off road for more of the ride tonight so I rode a nice loop with probably 60% asphalt and 40% off-road, singletrack.
I found a new piece of bridleway, which name I can’t remember at this point, but it was nice and slippery, narrow with nettles either side. A real concentration part, followed by dusty rutted farm track that certainly gave my arms a good workout.
The plan for the weekend is to ride to work and collect my car. The route is approx 20 miles so I’m hoping to have the 100 miles sewn up by sunday.
The rest of the month will be prep for Manchester Blackpool and to see how many more miles I can fit in.
