Wanted to do something hilly, got the train out to Berkswell and the train back from Nuneaton to maximise the number of decent segments I could do. Feeling quite good, trying to stay on the large chainring and almost succeeded but was dying om the last climb back up past Bentley from Atherstone.
Nice lil inaugural home cycle. Some of the roads were great, single track but good surfaces. Can't say I enjoy windy conditions on a bike at all, fine when you're running but incredibly annoying how much speed you dock going into the wind on a bike. Struggling a bit in the back third, quite a large proportion of the climb in the last 10k with an absolute grind up to Gibbets Hill right at the end.
