24 Hours of 'Cake
This weekend saw Velocake competing at the 24 Hrs of Exposure at Newcastle in Scotchland. Myself and Steve rode in (and hid from) 29 degree heat and under clear blue skies.
After the first couple of laps, the heat took its toll and we both took a break before setting off again. Steve did another couple of laps before deciding to call it a day due to his knee and I did another five, taking 1 1/2 hrs kip between 3 and 4 at 2:30am.
After them though, I was getting tired, the temperature was rising again and, displaying more common sense than I'm prone to, called it a day too.
However, the Cake massive should be proud, having done well in the conditions and lasted longer than half of the field, who had quit by 6pm.......
Katie and her faithfull assistant Mikey were support stars, as expected and all in all, the Massive had a great weekend....
