5:45am - 102.2km - 995m - 3hr 54min

What a wonderful day.

Woke up at 5am this fine morning but to my wonderful surprise, I had no bike lights installed on my bike so I had to wait...and wait and wait patiently until the sun had shone a bit more. Thus why my ride began at 5:45am...I do however have to go out and buy some bicycle lights! I also need to see if there's some kind of wind deflector for bikes on the market as that would have came in handy for today's ride.

Onto the ride....As I said above, I took off at 5:45am, obviously, headed to Qala and met up with the other cyclists, the usual bunch except there was a new Italian cyclist today, a nice man! We cycled for about 35km and started to disband slowly but I knew that I had to make today's ride long simply because I woke up at 5am and well...I couldn't let that opportunity go to waste! Also for the simple reason that the wind was somewhat on my side because I hardly even sweat during the whole 4hr ride! Climbed up some hills, amassing 995m of ascension, yeah seriously another 5m PLEASE...TECHNICALLY, my SIGMA computer states that I climbed up 1034m so...STRAVA must be bugged or something...however the SIGMA computer also says that I only cycled for 99.5km, yeah..


Today's ride was a continuation of my "long distance" series of rides but I am very far away from my ultimate goal of cycling 200km in one go, but I'm sure I'll be able to nail that goal very soon!
