Marlow Red Kite ride – 50 miles

The Marlow Red Kite ride was great, but I ran out of energy after 30 miles *again*. The last 5 miles were hell! 🙁

I’ve just tried to but a photo of me cycling during the ride from Sportive Photos but their mail server is set-up wrong and retries 3 times in two minutes on soft-fail and then gives up, so still don’t have the photo. Will post it up when I eventually get it.

I’m doing another 50 mile sportive, the Haddenham Howler, next weekend. Feeling a bit drained already.

I had a bike fitting done at Buckingham Bikes in Aylesbury before the Red Kite ride, which was money well spent. Felt much better afterwards. And I have now fitted by aero bars, need to get used to them, I think.
