1100-1200hrs. 40C Heat. Drenching and suffocating humidity.
Round 2 of 4 in the 24hr Cycling Challenge. This morning’s effort saw a respectable 28.3km in an hour. Given the heat and conditions, I would be forgiven for coming in under that distance but NO!! No, indeed! Another 0.8km was added, totalling 29.1km for the second session and a total thus far of 57.4km.
Needing to ensure hydration, I’ve downed 3 pints of squash, eaten a massive lunch with more water and will be taking onboard salts before I next go out. I also have a flapjack to eat, courtesy of the chefs on board.
I am now going to get some Vaseline.
