Putting in the Miles

I’m toying with the idea of doing a 12 hour solo MTB race next year, so though I’d better start doing some slightly longer rides. Up until now, anything over 15 miles was considered a longer ride and I very rarely do a ride that far. So, yesterday I was up at 5am as usual...

OK, so it costs quite a bit more than an unhealthy chocolate advent calendar but you get a great Lego™ calendar with a new mini-build every day through the advent period....
