May TCR Prep

1400km, 14,995m climbing.

Started the month with the ridiculous Doorstep Epic Plus then three days later had a proper bonk on the ride home from work. Decided I needed a few days rest.

A day on the Downs on the CX bike, racing home into a headwind over the tops.

A sprinting for signs smashfest to the cheese on toast cafe followed by a couple of pointless hills on the way home.

Evening ride to a special screening of Inspired To Ride.

First outdoor swim of the year (bracing!)

An aborted 700km DIY audax to visit my parents in south west France. Freehub started making strange noises after 260km, by 525km it was totally shagged so I had to give up. Hobbled 5km to next village. Thanks Mum and Dad for broomwagon services.

Tested out the aero bars, need some tweaks to get arm rests in correct place. Started to think about the actual Transcon route for the first time since rough draft for application process.
