Default First training ride of the season.

Recovering from a manic 16 mile "practice" session with the local cycling
hard men yesterday.

"It's 5 laps of this 3 mile course lads."

After lap 1 the marshall says "5 laps to go"

At the end I asked why we did 6 laps.

"The first one was a practice lap"

At 24 mph???????????? WTF

Hanging on to them in those circumstances is an achievement in itself.
Well done.
