The Ardechoise is only a few weeks away now so should I be tapering, carb-loading, hydrating, getting a massage or what? I have decided to just keep calm and carry on with my normal routine.
Today I put on my union flag cap, race cape, leg warmers and was out on the wet roads at 6:30am. I cycled out into the Easterly headwind and found my way to Buntingford before turning for home.
I completed over 70 miles today. It was my intention to do more and my legs felt good but I punctured close to home and decided to call it a day.
