Cold Winter Days - Tim's experience over Half Term

Whilst Tim remained the only Etape Virgin to stay on British soil over the half term week he put it to great use by notching up over 170 miles cycling in what can only described as PERFECT winter conditions. That said he was lulled into a false sense of security on Saturday when he peeked out to test the temperature in his back garden prior to a 3 hour cycle to find it was a barmy hot morning..that was until he got 20 minutes out of his village wearing his lycra shorts no overshoes and no woolly with the 10mph wind it felt a whole lot less. Arriving back home with hands and feet resembling blocs of ice he took a hot bath to recuperate and promptly got severe pins and needles through the extreme temperature differences. Morale of story: Don't let your bathwater get too hot!
