It was a great route today, you can view it here, pretty flat really compared to this ride we did a couple of weeks ago. We decided we'd do a little longer than usual to get a few more miles in the legs, with my ride there and back I did around 64 miles (102km) in total. I felt good on the bike today and put more thought into my nutrition. Prior to going I had porridge plus a banana, with some blueberries, washed down with a bottle of Gatorade. After the first hour I popped a gel, thirty minutes after that a flapjack (whilst Paul inspected my tyre on puncture number two, what a top chap), with regular gulps of PSP22 from Science in Sport. At our cafe break I had a Go bar and a cornflake chocolate cake (as a treat). I made up another half litre of drink with some of the product I got from Zipvit (which didn't taste as good as the PSP22). As you can see, I was eating pretty regularly in order to keep my carbohydrate levels topped up. As a result, I felt good all ride today and didn't feel tired, so I'll be continuing to test, learn and refine ready for the Cheshire Cat.
As for ride stats, I don't really have any today. With getting so many punctures, I managed to mount my wheel and forget about lining the magnet for my speedo up, so lost all the distance. My Garmin was mucking around too, so I managed to press a wrong button whilst I was fiddling with it en route and clear all the stored ride data. As you can see, it wasn't the best of day for bike technology! So, summary is ride distance of 62 miles today.
