On anticolesterol, I have been through most of the statins and am now on Ezetimibe.(non statin).....................just the other day I tracked down a US site which says that the med can cause a rash which I have had, muscle cramps well I feel awful all the time worst when I relax , joint pain unlike anything or similar to statins, itching lower legs and red rash, endurance has gone from 250 miles in a day to struggling to stay on bike after 100, then I get off and collapse for half an hour, and cant even cycle up any hill to get a few miles home.

Its GP on monday as I am well fed up :)


How many hours cycling for 250 miles?

Under 20 hrs in the saddle and home in less than 24hrs, self supporting on the old raleigh, water from streams and a pannier full of sarmes :)
I plan to improve on that...hopefully, same set up for 168 in 12.5 hrs less than 11 hours in the saddle :P Happy days..

I wont be doing end to end return until I can do 250 in a day again, not repeating devon and cornwall coast ride at 100 a day again :(

Lets be right, most people would struggle to stay on a bike over 100 miles, 250 is madness! :roll:
