I started training on 11th May 2014, cycling at 7.5 mph. Three months on I can now cycle 13 mph but only over 11 miles. I have had the continued support of my brother and sister-in-law at the weekends, cycling behind me encouraging me to go faster. We are now starting to increase the distance and trying to maintain the average 13 mph. My aim is still to try to cycle 52 miles in 4 hours but I will be happy to just to complete the ride and raise money for a worthy cause.
