Final tweaking

The cyclo-sportive is on Sunday. I moved my saddle 5mm back yesterday to see if that would alleviate the discomfort that I experienced on my ride last Sunday, otherwise I could see me retiring from the race. Andy and I had a burst up to Aulus and back (40km) today to check that the new position was a positive move. I am pleased to report that the riding position is much more effective and the discomfort is now negligeable! Provided I keep myself properly fuelled on Sunday, there is no reason why I shouldn't complete the 74kms. Pat, Kev and I are staying with friends of theirs in the area on Sunday with the promise of an excellent local market on Monday morning. Should be fun. Here's hoping for good weather. I will report back!
