On the final weekend leading up to the big one, I was joined by my old colleague Gavin & Sandra as we cycled from London to Cambridge. A distance of 58 miles. We left Pickford Lock at 7.30am on our ride

My fruit based drink at the end!!
We were a lot quicker than Thursday when we went to Canterbury, the roads were a lot flatter, with only moderate rolling hills, there was only 1 climb of note during the whole day & we weren't cycling into a head wind.
Facts & Figures of the ride
Average heart beat 74% of maximum & maximum was 95%. I burnt 2968 calories & we cycled 57.9 miles at an average of 13.1 mph. My maximum speed was 33 mph
I lost another 3 spokes which a nice mechanic repaired. He said that the wheels I have are basically shite & made for road racers & not sportif riders. Off to the cycle shop Monday to order 2 new wheels!!
The Route, which like a number of these Sunday rides I have done have been very well organised & stewarded.......chapeau!
