Afternoon

Managed 50 miles yesterday, felt so much better than the 45 two weeks ago, need to find some new longer routes now though

Evening, April has been rubbish and won't get much better.

Anyway, I think I'm going to fuel my 100 with hot cross buns and flapjacks.

Also thinking about getting some sort of camelback type thing, as I don't really want to stop if I can help it, anybody have experience of long rides with these?

Any big rides over the long weekend?

60 miles coming up shortly. It's foggy outside but going up to 20C. How on earth do I dress for that? My pockets won't stretch to carrying a second set of kit!

Last year I used a running backpack from Decathlon for work commutes in the heat and put 2 x iced soft flasks in the front pockets. It also takes a camelback type bladder. MTBers tend to use them but I haven't tried using it like that.

My bike frame only has room for one water bottle. I've worn a race vest for a long sportive when I didn't want to stop at busy feed stations. I didn't look elegant but the arrangement worked well.
