No RideLondon 100 for me this year

I got the ‘Commiserations’ booklet through the post this morning.

The RideLondon 2016 Commiserations magazine

Normally I’d have been gutted, but it seems very unlikely that I’ll be fit by August let alone capable of 100 miles and so this is probably a good thing. Would have been nice to get a place and then defer it for a year, but now once I’ve had my hernia surgery I can just take it easy for a bit and do some slow miles to build myself up, rather than try to rush for a sportive.

I’ve been ill and tired so haven’t even been out on my MTB. I’ve put on so much weight as well, can’t wait for this hernia to be fixed!
