Great Manchester Cycle
I took part in the Great Manchester cycle on Monday and it was a treat to be on closed roads. Apparently it was not a race but no one told me and I spent the whole race overtaking people. I clocked 1:20:02 for 26 miles and came 90th.
I think like every one I could have gone faster if there was not such a blockage at the salford quays. That section needs a review if it comes back next year; which it should, great success and lucky it was cool, sunny and dry.
Well done to all who did the 52 miles, I will have to try this next year and make sure there aren't 800 people starting in front of me.
