The Tour is over… 😦
For 9 days I joined about 1600 other riders from all over the world as we completed the Tour of Sufferlandria. It was a virtual tour that was done on our bike trainers in our own homes; but what was surprising was just how much we felt like we were doing it together. The premise behind The Sufferfests is that you will become a better cyclist through pain and suffering on the bike. While that may be true, in reality it is a really fun way to kick your own ass so you can beat others! Usually I dread my trainer time but since my recent adoption of TrainerRoad and this tour, I have found a new passion for my trainer time. Of course it also helped that except for 2 rides, Stuart and I did all the stages together. He has done a much better write up of each stage on his blog and the recaps on The Sufferfest website are awesome.
Total miles ridden were just under 200 miles in almost 13 hours (I had to do Rubber Glove twice)
