Sam Weller’s Day Trip to Wochma – 203km 2015 Audax

Audax UK

 

Last Saturday I set off at 5 am to do another 200km Audax, this time from Tewkesbury, heading westwards before going down to Chepstow, over the Severn to Malmesbury and back up to Tewkesbury and the first 2015 Audax over!

I, unfortunately, jacked the ride in after 30 miles and got on the train at Hereford after an encounter with ice. Not the best start to 2015 audax-wise!

Generally alright and no major damage I tried pressing on but wasn’t enjoying it. I’d come down a hill and right at the bottom there was a patch of obvious sheet ice. I hit the brakes but still was going at 18mph and the front wheel just slid out from under me. I performed the Superman over the bars and hit the deck.

Looking forward to another attempt later in the 2015 Audax season!

Not sure how, but cut this

My sad face on the train home, cut chin and bruised above the eye from the impact of ground and helmet.

Never had a stone get itself stuck there…it’s still there a week later
