Tour of the Douro Training Ride Number 19: 27th April

Route: Lower Benefield-Brigstock-Grafton Underwood-Cranford-Great Addington-Ringstead-Denford-Thrapston-Titchmarsh-Clopton-Thurning-Luddington-Hemington-Polebrook
Distance: 40 Miles
Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

What a horrible ride! This was going to be a 50 mile plus ride, but it was so cold I cut the ride short. A lot of cyclists were out and those that I chatted with were doing the same; cutting their rides short because it was uncomfortable to ride in these conditions. The only good thing about the ride was I warmed up next to the Aga, it started to pour and hail, at least I got the timing of my return right! Plus as my wife said it is rides like these that earn you your sponsorship! So if you are reading this, off to my just giving page please!
