Sweaty Singlespeed Sufferfest

It’s hot out there with a capital H O T today. I got home from work at 16:10 and noticed that I had a parcel to collect from the sorting office, so I quicky got changed, refilled the camelbak, grabbed the Unit, and was back out on the bike by 16:25. The long slog up Wellsway was pretty painful in this heat, and then I managed to smack my left arm into a branch on the first bit of singletrack meaning that the entire outside of my arm and the outside two fingers are now quite painful. The rest of the ride was fairly uneventful, if a little uncomfortable. I picked up the package on the way back through town, and was home by 17:45.

12 miles and 1080ft/329m climbing in an hour and a bit.

    Mother is concerned!
    Time to use a little influence at work and get an x-ray or a rub down from a willing nurse?
