Suffolk 50mile Ride

There is me thinking the weather is going to be getting better, turned up to Woodbridge Bike event in Suffolk on Sunday.  Decided to change to the 100km route rather than the 100m, but due to signage being moved I ended up doing only 50miles.  Used my QR TT bike and felt very comfortable and was able to maintain an average speed of 20.1mph, finishing in 2:30hr.  Got back to the car wet and cold, and managed to get changed and drag my self off for a 6mile run.  Very happy with my motivation to do brick session and through the run i ran out of drink and had no gels with me.  Felt like I had done an Ironman, far from it.

Last week I did my first 10mTT Kettringham,  25:02min,  lumpy course but pleased with first TT of the Year.  I also took part in the Ixworth Criterium racing, different sort of racing and hard and fast miss the front row from the grid and you will be left behind.  800meter loop ride for 20min then 5laps.  Hard, did I say that already.

Trying to sort out a new Road racing bike as my training Felt is good for training and started to wear, but need something lighter and faster for road races.
