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

Gallery

 

Last Saturday I set off at 5am 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.

I unfortunately jacked it in after 30 miles and got on the train at Hereford after an encounter with ice.

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.

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.
