947 x 7 on Beer and Bread is complete!
First the bad point. I did not make all seven days and finished with 947 x 6.
On the Tuesday I felt very low and thought seriously about whether I had taken a step too far in the Back To Basics. Wednesday and Thursday got my mind and body on track. Friday was a fabulous Qhubeka ride and Saturday was an awful day with 95km done at 16kph into a huge headwind all day.
Sunday, race day, Bianca and I had camped at the Riversands start venue and had a great evening in the Craft Beer Bar before taking an early night. We rose early, 04h00, due to the PA system being tested. No problem, an early coffee and breakfast of dragon toast and egg. Fine food for racing. Bianca’s start on her restored Zini was at 07h30 so she left me to stew in camp for another two hours for my start.
