Turns out the trick to building high mileages is not to hack your way through Cambridgeshire byways for miles and miles but to get some good road sections in with a good average speed. Today I headed down to Regent’s Park as I figured the large number of mamils combined with the flatter (turns out the Park look has a couple of “faux plats”) road would simulate the experience of riding in a crowded charity event.

The good news is that I broke the 45 mile mark today. The bad news is my gears are frozen. Hope to find time for some maintenance this week as #palace2palace is happening soon.
