Having done the first 2 parts of the Wessex Series a month ago (write up here ), I was both very excited and very worried about the Porkers 400. Excited as this ride has a reputation as one of the most rewarding rides in the UK and worried as it is also seen as the hardest ride of the series.
This year looks to be an interesting year - I'm pretty fired up for it already. It started a bit limply, but I feel I am getting into my stride, and my 300km DIY last weekend has given me a renewed confidence for the season ahead. One big issue for long-distance cycling is balancing time between cycling and home. It is clearly a pursuit that takes a lot of time. It's not like, let's say running, where an hour or two is a very good long run. You need entire days for a good long bike ride. This can, and has, caused friction in my life for sure.
