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
