I had a good nights sleep and set the alarm for 6am. I was lucky my alarm even went off as my phone was on 15, I must have knocked my phone charger in the night. I double checked google maps and my garmin for a route across a mountain …

Day Six

Today was a complete nightmare, I'm very glad it's over. The day started off badly to begin with, I overslept through three alarms and eventually woke at 8am, I should have been 30 minutes into the day's ride by then. This obviously meant I needed the rest as I don't …
