Good work.  Your reports made me feel young again, learning to ride.  Glad you found it easy enough to enjoy.

Excellent stuff John. Hadn't realised it was an all nighter from your earlier posts. Did you have a big 'headlight'? You must have been tired at the end!!!  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked

Cheers Bio - i had a good headlight, some people were carrying full beam lighthouse things; waiting at the top of a hill for my group i was blinded by the walkers coming up!

I could barely walk Sunday!  The padding in my shorts died in the last 20 miles and was having trouble sitting in the saddle - had to stand when descending so my cheeks could re-inflate!  Embarassed  Laughing

On Monday i was fine, little sore in the legs but did a 10 mile ride with no probs; could even sit in the saddle comfortably!
