Today I experienced both the positives and negatives of cycling in a group. This isn't the place to go into details and the brisk 90 miles to Bedale and back certainly will do me good.
I missed today's cx race for a few reasons, mainly transport but also when it boils down to it for me bike racing isn't life and death. I have enough of that in my family at the moment, so I'm taking it each day as it comes and riding when I can and making sure it's enjoyable. Lets leave the proper suffering till the new year when training starts in earnest again.
