Day 56 – Those CBAs

Day 56 – Those CBAs

Day 56 (26th Jun)

Distance 30 miles

Just a heads up I’m about to have a moan.

I was going to leave around noon today but Jesus it was too hot and I have a seriously debilitating case of the Can’t Be Arseds (CBAs). I sat in the air con all day and at 4pm finally got back on the bike.

The sun was hot, the wind was hot, the shade was hot, my water was hot and I was hot.

It was a long gradual uphill day as I followed the Salmon river upstream, and soon enough I pulled off at a rest stop for more water.

A bloke pulled over, walked casually over to the river and just got in it. I sat there watching with sweat running down my face and right that second I decided to get in as well. I walked over and got in fully clothed, it was so refreshing! I got out and back on the bike, within 10 minutes I was bone dry again.

The day got better and so did my mood, sometimes you just have to get on with it and stop sulking right. Some days can be tough but the feeling is temporary, tomorrow will be a better day.

Yours in cycling,

  1. Dan, sounds like you’re having a great time. We also saw those butterflies but definitely didn’t see the bear! Keep up the good work, you’re almost there mate!
    Nolan and Ileana

    1. Nolan hello! I hope yourself and Ileana are doing brilliantly. I am back home now and am missing the daily adventures very much! It was brilliant meeting you both, see you on the Lands End to John O’Groats next summer!
