“Taking it easy” or tapering is boring, FACT. The week prior to the 3 Peaks has also coincided with the driest and most pleasant spell of weather for months, so part of me wants to be out there mountain biking as much as possible whilst the other part of me knows that I need to take it steady.
I went out for a ride last night and rode to my mum’s and back – only about 8 miles or so. I took the offroad option on the way there (look at the pic! Dust!) and ended up caning it all the way along the disused railway line, without really thinking about it.
Then I was caning it all the way back along the road. I don’t think I’m supposed to be riding fast.
