Yesterday I rode the Salisbury Plain Challenge and took pictures for a feature in Cycling Weekly. It was grim. Possibly the most unpleasant ride I've ever done.
Most of the ride was on waterlogged fields (the rain was biblical all day on Saturday and early Sunday morning) which meant the climbs were long pushes, the flats were frustrating granny gear grinds against the wind, and the descents were super slippery straight liners down the grassy plains. Plus I crashed covering myself and most of my gear in chalky crap. It was horrible, bring on the road racing season.
