Total Rush Shop Ride:
Of the three things that aren't nice to contend with on a ride, this ticked two boxes. Cold, and wet. Thankfully it wasn't windy, otherwise I would have been forced to be utterly miserable.

Actually, on the way home I wasn't really feeling the cold either. I was sitting on the front with DK, and I was lying through my teeth to him. I lied with my wheel position, holding mine level with his. I lied with my body language, I held myself composed. I lied with my mouth, I uttered a "yep", when asked if I was ok. The truth was, he was slowly tearing me apart at the seams. At the moment I uttered that "yep", my heart rate was 182bpm, I was pushing 400W, and I knew I'd have to find a further 200W when we hit what used to be my favorite hill.

I know he wasn't trying to destroy my will to live, no, that was solely my own intention.
