I had signed up to a cycling challenge following a talk at my children's school about setting a good example. The talk emphasised how you need to set a good example to your children and if you don't challenge yourself, you can't expect your kids to follow suit.
The challenge was cycling coast-to-coast across Italy, from Rimini to Pisa. Three days, ±185 miles. Not so concerning until you add in the 12,000 feet ascent which, for me, was going to be hard. I was more of a recreational cyclist. The further I'd ever cycled before was around the Isle of Wight in one day. But I'd never done back-to-back days on my bike. I was genuinely terrified.
