Summer seems to be here, so another morning spin was in order. All-round a great way to start the day: new Rapha jersey the sun shining brightly, and company to help push me. A burst of energy in the final climb to Devil’s Dyke (thanks, cheeky pre-ride espresso and banana) provided a huge morale boost - however, on the route back to Brighton, we overtook a horse and rider at the bottom of a short climb. Somewhat exhausted, we found ourselves halfway up the climb with a horse breathing down our necks. Certainly some motivation.
All round, a fantastic start to the day - and set up the week perfectly.
