excuses: it was very hot
              i probably wasn’t properly hydrated
              i had a week of eating rubbish
              i had half an eye on riding later on too

well, the planned long ride didn’t go ahead, basically i just didn’t have the legs, after a week of excess (no regrets though it was great!) my riding motor was still sat in a pub beer garden somewhere overlooking the North Yorkshire coast, probably eating an ice cream, trying not to get caught looking at lovely girls in summer dresses from behind it’s polarised mirror finish lenses. it certainly wasn’t there with me on the bike. so because of this i rode a loop instead of a long away and back route. there were loads of riders out on the road, maybe the tour de france/olympic effect? but it was good to see. i resisted the cafe, the last thing i needed was more cake (need is different to want i must point out) and git home feeling quite spent, time to recover with something healthy and watch the boys in the Olympic road race
