C-3PO

Yup it’s a bit random I know. The title and the image have nothing to do with each other.

Well I got a little board naming my Strava uploads “ride to work” “ride home” “Sunday afternoon” etc so I decided they needed random fun names and currently they are being named after Star Wars characters and today was the letter C. So why wouldn’t it be C-3PO?

C-3PO was a long ride: 60k in total with 1000m climbing. I ride to the start point of today’s MB Swindon club ride. The ride itself was only a little over 20k itself but adding my own 40k seemed like a good idea at the time.

Needless to say I am shattered. I think this I the longest I have ridden in a day and with the climbing it took its toll.

The club ride itself was pretty good for a Novice ride. There was a big vote in favour of playing on some DH runs that made it quite exciting and I have some video to edit as a result.

The last 10k or so home was hard work. I went to bed late last night and woke early this morning, a 60k ride on about 3 hours sleep was tiring.

Anyway I will post the video up later in the week as well as a link to the route for those that are interested.

Meanwhile I hope you enjoy my sunset, I think C-3PO would say something like “Oh my!”
