We enjoyed a delicious bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from the TITUS vineyards last night thanks to our roommate and her husband – it was truly delicious, but I could still feel it this morning and was not sure what my ride would like. I chose the perfect window between the rain storms and was delighted to find my legs felt good, my head clear and the wine added useful energy rather than an anchor to my attempt.

The result: 64km at over 27km/hour; the peloton covered the 209km of today’s stage of the Giro d’Italia at 41km/hour so not time to give up the day job, but since I have a day job it was not too bad!
