after the 31 miles i’d completed in the afternoon i then met up with the guys for the weekly night ride. we went down into the valley to meet Ian and Ben. the trails were very sticky and climbing was like riding through warm fudge at time, very hard going, not what i was hoping for with tired legs. we eventually made our way around to the Lickeys which were very spooky at that time of night, with one very angry Owl showing it’s displeasure of us being there by hooting continuously, the conditions here were worse than the valley and it was a bit of a slog to climb to the summit. i needed to have fueled better during the day as i began to get the first feelings of “bonking”, luckily not far from the end of the last climb and i was able to roll most of the way home after saying goodbye to the guys. i was pleased with my general fitness though even with the low fuel issue
