Next Challenge

Just back from a great 2 week holiday in Croatia, now back in training for my next challenge

August 4th The Prudential Ride London 102 mile on closed roads the ride has 9 hour cut off. Looking at pre ride maps etc looks like 3 good hills Newlands Corner, Leith Hill which has a short section of 18% that comes around 55 miles should be fun and lastly the famous Box Hill. Target before the ride lose half a stone ( holiday fat) build, fitness up.

ImageThe Swan public house in Cheadle have been raising money for Cancer Research Uk  they have raised over £3500.00 so far and they have put a sponsor form behind the bar for this ride. Anyway I will keep this blog gong until the ride.

Tonight I will be out on another 20+ miles training ride with Paul and Amanda, then tomorrow morning going on a 50 – 60 mile ride with Tom and Barry.
