Day 28 of 30 Days of Biking

Well this was the day I have been working up to, Pedal for the J's 35 mile cycle ride. Up nice & early to a cold Sunny morning & was the best weather we could have for a long ride. Got to the Registration point at 8.30am & left at 9am.


Wasn't long by time I got to 1st refuelling stop 15 miles along, 1 hr 20 mins.


A few mins for a drink, a bite to eat then off again & the route was a scenic one.


Wasn't long before I got to 25 mile mark where & stopped & had a cuppa at High Easter.



Next stop was at around 30 miles in Pleshey to meet up with my beloved Jules at a lovely lil pub & had a good coffee there.



Saw plenty of cyclist pass at that point.



Stopped for a lil while & enjoyed spending some time with Jules before I was off again, the next stop was a few miles later in Great Waltham to refuel for the last bit of the ride.


By this point I had ridden 31 miles, I knew I've now gone further than I've ever done before & I've still got a few more miles to go. So off I went to finish the ride... And I did! :D



Was a fantastic if tiring event I won't forget, I do ache but in a good way. 8 yrs ago I wouldn't have thought I would do this, hell I didn't think I would ever cycle again ever in my life. I have again surpassed myself & I know I will again when I can.


I like to thank my beloved Jules, who took the pictures & videos of me cycling today. I finally now have pics/video of me & my Beast working together.

Here's a clip of my ride today:

    1. Thankyou, I will email later. I do remember you from our chat at The Meadows & still go out in all weathers & have finally become stick free as explained in this blog: http://wolfiesblogs.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/on-2-legs.html. I must admit last year has been one hell of a rollercoaster of events as explained here: http://wolfiesblogs.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/a-reflection-on-past-year-of-2013.html#.Ut7TzRBFDtQ & I hope to out match it this yr. :D

      I did enjoy the Pedal for the J's sponsored ride, it was a great well organised sponsored ride. I am planning to come do it again & try the 50 mile one this time.
