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
