I'm staying out in Italy before moving on to Spain for the Aragon race and there is no better way to prepare for those three flyaway races in Japan, Malaysia and Australia than a bit of cycling in the sunshine.
I've got some good friends in Riccione from my days racing in the Polaris World Team and we aim to cover a few hundred kilometres in the next few days.
The weekend before the Misano race I cycled a few hundred kilometres but in very different circumstances. I rode for the Silverstone-based Porsche Human Performance Centre in the 24 hour race around the old Nurburgring track in Germany.
It would have been tough on my Mistral Motorbike, but 24 hours on a pushbike round the 14-mile circuit was a different experience both for my body and my brain.
We'd trained all year for it but nothing could have prepared me for it. I'm not a party animal and I like my sleep and when I was cycling alone out in the forest in the dark my brain wanted to shut down. I've never felt so tired.
You have to carry on and that was so rewarding and I really learnt a lot about myself on that long dark night.
One thing I decided was that I'm going back to the Nurburgring for some track days but this time on four wheels. What an amazing track, even in the middle of the night and we were chuffed to finish ninth out of 660 teams.
My Mum's got the bike bug and this week she is cycling from London to Paris in aid of the Riders For Health charity. You can pledge your support for her ride by logging onto www.BradleySmith38.com
For most people it would be pretty tough cycling that distance but my Mum will treat it like a four-day holiday from the crazy World of the Smith household.
