"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

It’s not all about the bike.. Social Media..
Everyone checking the STRAVA UPDATE..
Drastic measure were required this morning with 2 days to go in the #RaphaFestive500. So we opted for less elevation & more distance (now why didn’t we think that before!).
With one puncture & the bunch decided to not wait at the pit-stop (WTF), Mark (centre) & I decided to hold the front wheel for the last 35km to try & catch up with the bunch as there were only 4 of us.
We never caught them, but we did have good coffee & pastries at the cafe!

I was called a PUNK during the ride by the older establishment (because of my socks).
