Well we have slowly increased our mileage from that initial meander around the inner circle at Regents Park. After stretching to cycling around Hyde Park we took to the roads near Lamberhurst a few weeks ago. 23 miles that day and mostly very hilly indeed. Deciding that Kent wasn't flat enough we spent last weekend in Suffolk. Covered 60 miles altogether, 28 on the Saturday. Saturday's ride involved a lunch stop in Southwold at a pub just minutes from the Adnams brewery! Well earned and worthwhile.
The Bank Holiday weather meant it was the gym rather than cycling today but we feel ready to tackle the 34 miles next Sunday and just hope it is not as wet as today!
Thanks again to all who sponsored us. We will send around an update after the ride.
