Last year I foolishly set out on one of the toughest rides in the South of England. I will confess I'd underestimated and underprepared for a 113 mile ride on one of the hottest days of the year, and ran out of time to complete the course.
I was humbled by people’s support, and the level of sponsorship I received and in the light of last year’s failure, I have decided to go one better this year (and with a significantly greater level of preparation and hard graft!)
I'm planning on doing three rides, and sadly the way the calendar works I have the hardest first, but that's not to say the other two are easy! Having trained for a number of months, and with two and half months until I finish the last event, this is what I aim to achieve:
King of the Downs (2nd June 2013): 115 miles, over 9,000 feet ascent
London to Brighton (16th June 2013): 53 miles, over 2,000 feet total ascent
Boris's London 100 (4nd August 2013): 100 miles, ascent unknown
