Aug ’17 Cycling Dist. Challenge – Ride 8

Another evening ride tonight – decided to spend some extra time in bed this morning and with a busy afternoon this seemed like a good idea.

It was forecasted to be cloudy with no rain tonight, but after 5 miles heavy rain started and I had to stop to put my waterproof on, it stopped shortly after but I’d sweated so much that when I took it off the breeze against my sweaty top made my cold – I ended up cycling a little faster and achieved three personal records on a route I’ve been cycling frequently for three years… not bad.

Though, this ride was a little different. My mate Chris has given me a loan of his Specialized Secteur Elite road bike which appears to be a great fit but more importantly is giving me the opportunity to try a SRAM drivetrain for the first time… more on that later.

It was another 23 flat miles to Kilmacolm and back leaving me with 592 miles to go.
