Three years ago I was riding the LVIS Audax in memory of Steve Worland, and yesterday it was for another of the good guys, taken long before their time. And yet again, it was the kind of ride that makes you remember why you do this stuff. Mike would have loved it, and beaten me round by hours, and ridden home to Wales. Ride on.
