What have I let myself in for?

Taking on #thebenchmark

This morning saw the arrival of the day I had been eagerly awaiting and equally dreading - my first ride alongside team #benchmark Trevor Jackson. The minute I told the lads I was going out with Trevor I got very similar responses, all along the lines of "Oh man, what have you done?"

Thankfully Trevor had already got 22 miles under his belt by the time he got to me at an average of 18mph on his new Canyon so he agreed to go easy on me in exchange for a little sponsorship for his London2Paris campaign (Text TJAC99 £2 to 70070). The best £2 I've ever spent.

We headed off to new locations for Trevor, meaning he had to stay with me (clever thinking hey) and took in the sights of Great Leighs, Felsted, Rayne, Ranks Green and Terling before returnning to my house at the 23 miles mark for me. A quick break for Trevor and a cup of well-earned Yorkshire Tea before he headed home to complete 68 miles in total.

A very enjoyable ride but can't wait to get my new chainset sorted so I stand a better chance of keeping up.  Thanks Trevor and thanks for reading.
