Revolve 24 was probably one the hardest things I’ve done in a long time. Who stays up for 38 hours straight! The answer is no one in their right mind. Now how rides 300 miles and over Everest in a day… again no one in their right mind. The first 6 hours were nice and easy, dare I say the first 12 hours on the bike I felt brilliant. The next 6 hour block was probably one of the worst moments of my life! My brain had turned into mush and I had forgot how to eat food. 3 hours later, I’m being sick and can’t hold down any food and wanting to throw in the towel. 1 hour later, I’ve managed to keep my food down and I’m back on the bike feeling like a new and slightly exhausted man. Revolve 24 taught me a lot about myself, how I manage fatigue and what tired really is.
