London to Brighton Ride Log

So on Sunday 16th June, 2013 I rode the London to Brighton ride to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Below is my ride log - when I get a little more time I will be completing a more complete ride evaluation - but below gives an overview - we rode from our hotel to the start line which is why it's a little longer - but it was an amazing day - great ride and some challenging parts - all in all an excellent day...

30.53 mile Friday evening ride

So today I went for my first 'big ride' the longest of my training rides so far - I didn't manage to set out until 7.45pm so was a little limited by light and temperature - however we still managed to get some great miles in! Managed 3 climbs per loop with 1 big one that was hard but unlike the last time I rode it on both occasions last night I managed to get up it without stopping. Hard work but rewarding...

I will be writing a review of my new Continental 4000s Gran Prix tires I have fitted within the last few days once I complete a few more miles on them...

Remember if you would like to sponsor me and my best friend on our 58 mile ride from London to Brighton on 16th June 2013 then you can HERE

Pre-event ride - 26 miles!

So me and my friend Neil decided to try and at least get about half the distance covered before the London to Brighton ride on Sunday 16th June - and we mixed up th route to include a range of slow gradual slopes as well as steep climbs (hard work on my double ring TDF) - below is the route, elevation and information about the ride...

More rides to come this week (Wednesday and Friday hopefully!)
