Ok so one down 17 to go .......

thank you soo much to everyone who donated - we have already amassed £1023.72 - bang on target !!

the day started with an early bowl of porridge and cup of tea - some pills and no not the lance armstrong way .......

the build up was slow but surprisingly sunny albeit very fresh, with an amazing back drop of blenheim palace and after having a good chat to people around you - it made you remember why you were there

so as we got into the ride at about mile 20 the group of 6 female breast cancer care pro riders started to creep through - and as i followed them up and down the hills of oxfordshire - it became clear to me just how easy pro riders make hills seem - especially very steep ones !!

however they were a lot nicer to follow than the earlier hairy ar$$ed chap that farted mid climb whilst i was following him .....

any how it was great fun and i finished it thus

At the end a lovely cup of tea awaited and i can now chalk one off the board 

So it is now to get ready for the nightrider 100k on the 8th june - cycle through the night - i leave at 11.55pm from crystal palace - more details and updates to follow

so as i prepare for the next event please just arm yourselves with you credit / debit card and donate generously - all donations are extremely gratefully received and visit my just giving web page 

thanks a million

The build up to the Blenheim 60 miler

As the rain chucks it down outside I am sat in the warm in front of the fire with a nice glass of white wine preparing myself for early sunday morning

I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all those who have sponsored me so far and we have amassed a very respectable £963 prior to the event

The tyres are pumped - the energy gels are packed - the vaseline is to hand .......

Watch this space for the post race details :)
