So a few months ago a colleague suggested cycling the London Bikeathon.. Little did I know the adventure we would embark on. From the training, competition, comradery and laughs it has been a whirlwind of testing and pushing ourselves for today.
And on the day? What an experience!! The views were breath-taking and everyone was in good spirits. The endless stopping and starting at traffic lights was extremely frustrating in the beginning, but after we got out on the straights things were looking up. Tien’s ability to weave in and out of traffic and other cyclists saw him leading the way! For the first half we pretty much managed to stay together. After that we went our own ways.. Despite my blip and managing to slowly crash into a barrier (yes you read that right!) the highlight for me was riding the whole route non-stop and crossing the finish line before the guys!!!
My Team Mates and I all exceeded our own expectations and we beat our Fundraising goal so I think it’s fair to say today was an incredible success all round!!!
