Home from work, a few days in Sweden dispensed with, training starts for the climb.
I’ve already realised one thing, the ride will be less complicated than I’d originally thought. No need to worry about this gear change business. Onto the big ring, get them legs moving slowly, stay there, nod to Tom, stand next to sign to have photo taken. Simples.
56 gentle minutes today for the first ride of the year, with the only gentle gradients in the area conquered. i’m thinking its going to take me 2hrs 30 to climb the Beast of Provence, so am looking to be riding for 3hrs here with as much uphill as possible.
I’m also thinking its going to hurt. A lot!!
