Well today was the club 100 miles ride and oh boy was it hard. Even though I was going with the slower group I still suffered. Things were fine up to the cafe stop just after comrie but about 20 miles after that I ran out of energy We were in the Trossachs by this point int time and although we weren’t taking a particularly hilly route I had to drop off to stop and eat. I caught up with the group in Callander and was only able to keep up with them to Doune where I cramped up and had to stop again. I decided to part ways at this point and make my own way back and took the route with the least amount of resistance whilst stopping often to allow myself to recharge a bit. I reset the Garmin at Stirling which is why this is on 2 parts again. So 110 miles clocked up in about 7 hours 30 mins with an avg of 14 mph and 4500 feet of climbing. I think going forward I may need to do the long rides on my own, the club only stopped twice which is far too fee stops for me to make such a long distance, think I stopped about 5 times over the total distance which I don’t think the club would do.
