In case you don’t live in London or have had your head in the sand for the last few months there was a rather large cycle sportive on this weekend! A number of events took place over the weekend, climaxing with the Ride 100 challenge and the London-Surrey Classic for the pros.
Having not quite reached pro level just yet, I took part in the Ride 100 race, which is a 100 mile cycle through London and Surrey. Yes that’s right…a hundred miles you say!!
At this stage it would be naughty not to mention that I only took part in the business relay – roughly 25 miles each between the four of us. Pheeewwww!
I took on the first leg of the challenge, which started at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park…
So I set off homeward bound, only another 15 miles to add to my journey….
….and I was still home by 11am! It’s amazing how much you can get done when you get up early!
Having cycled a round trip of 50 miles the 100 doesn’t seem too bad……hmmmm Next Year perhaps??
Ballot opens for 2014 next Monday 12th August. Put your name down! What’s the worst that could happen….
