54 miles later…

London to Brighton bike ride

Surprisingly, I actually did it. London to Brighton, 54 miles, on the hottest day of the year. It was a bit better than I thought – I got cramp quite badly at about 35 miles, but managed to cycle through it, and even the slightest hill after the halfway point made my thighs ache – but I didn’t really get to a point where I thought ‘I can’t do this’. It was a fantastic day, and the support of the people along the route offering home-made cakes, drenchings with water pistols, or just encouragement, made it even better. Best of all, the British Heart Foundation have raised over £3M from the 27,000 (yes, 27 thousand) people who did the ride on Sunday.

If I haven’t cajoled you into donating already, there’s still time
