RideLondon-Surrey 100, 2015

Ride London 100 – done! Despite feeling unwell (upset stomach and weird lingering fatigue and weakness that began mid-week) and despite only getting 2.5 hours’ sleep, I cycled the 100 miles in 5 hours 36 minutes exactly (this includes stops to fill water bottles, grab some gels and take the occasional ‘natural break’). My actual riding time was about 5 hours 15. I’m very pleased with that. It was warm and started getting hot, so my peely-wally Scottish skin is also glad I finished shortly after mid-day. Thank you so very much to those who have already sponsored me. If you haven’t yet, but wish to do so, here is the link. Asthma UK is a hugely worthwhile charity. Thank you thank you thank you.
