Just over 3 months to go, training in full swing.

Well with just over 3 months to go, I can't believe how quick it is coming round to the day we set off. After taking part in the london Bikeathon last year (2014), I felt invigorated that i had done some of this nature, I never thought I could do something like this. Giving myself a challenge is part of the reason for doing these rides as I really need to loose wieght and try and get fit.

But the main reason is that I am supporting a good friend of mine who recovered from lukeamia a while back, Steve Mitchell. In fact, there are now 5 of us taking part in this years London to Paris ride with Steve, all from a small coastal town. But that is not all, we have decided to start the day before from our home town of Selsey, West Sussex, adding aproximatly another 100 miles to the total.

Training is now in full swing doing at least 60 mile a week and building up to some more serious mileage as we get closer to the big event, I hope to shed a few more pound by then, just so that i can keep up and avoid going backwards when i hit a hill.
