First day and we met in Greenwich park very early. My lovely wife came with me of course. We had to Halo a cab since the Turnham Green cabs didn't want anything to do with that journey.
250 people met and we were off at around 8.30. Traffic lights and traffic meant that it took a while to get out of London. Finally found some open scenic roads and lovely weather. Pushed hard after the forts break until lunch and then set off for the last bit to Folkstone. Time trail at the biggest hill. 23% incline and I. Are it up. Don't know my time but who cares - I made it up the steepest hill I've ever climbed.
Met it several very nice people who had either a direct connection to cancer through a family member or friend or just wanted the challenge.
Off to eat and then sleep. See you tomorrow.
