Etape preparation - 5 months to go

The weather has been slow to improve but I have at least built up a bit from the freezing January.  The last two winter series at Hillingdon took care of the top end and I managed the Hemel Hempstead and High Wycombe 100k reliability rides, the latter in grim conditions when I was beset by two punctures.  The commuting has again been limited due to a lot of freezing weather and I have abandoned any plans to go out today due to the heavy rain.  The six recent days on my club's training trip to Spain has saved the month though and given me some climbing, including a couple of time trials up the Coll de Rates.
So I have managed 815 miles in 52:52 (average 15.5 mph) with 15,115m of climbing.
