I booked today off a couple of weeks back cos I wanted to go for a proper bike ride. So I was super-chuffed to see blue skies, no wind and mid-teen temperatures when I got up this morning. After some mild fettling first thing I went for a wonderful 75-mile meander through sunny Sussex backroads and loved every minute of it. When I got home I celebrated my good fortune with a pint of ice-cold lager on Brighton beach before strolling home to get ready for an evening out with one of my best mates. I strongly suspect there will be a steak later too.
wanted to introduce you all to our wonderful charity cycle event planned for next August 2011.
The Big Life Ride is a 12 hour bike relay and our aim is to raise £1 million pounds for our charities:
Cancer Research UK
Macmillan Cancer Support
Rainbow's Children's Hospice
Who's coming? I'm thinking of doing it fixed.
i have a window in my busy(?!) schedule for a friday (22nd May) afternoon spin, anytime after 1.30 if anyone fancys joining me. Route? well obviously starting from here, Bristol and i suspect heading up to the old severn bridge, across to Tintern, with a quick loop round the hills and then back..60 odd miles. Pace? well not a pootle, but no chaingang either just steady. leave comment if interested and we can sort out a starting place. cheers.
