13.017 – TEN.DAYS.ON.THE.RØAD

A belter of a Sunday, a quick TT and a Devon Road Trip in ten days… On Sunday the 5th, 25 of us met up at 06:45 (or 07:00 (ish) for some) and rode into the cool early summer sun. With Arm warmers still very much on our route took us first down to Penshurst and Edenbridge, before looping over to Copthorne and then south toward, but crucially missing, Haywards Heath[1].

CX Round.Eight.Marden (Postponed) – Out of my depth at Southampton

With three weeks to go until Round 8 at Marden, I’d enjoyed a week off training and was ready to get back on track. When I found out that Marden had been postponed I scanned the BC calendar for other races – Do I dare enter my first National Trophy? Seemed like a good idea at the time! With two weeks to go I ramped up the training and everything was looking good. I’d got rid of a case of the man-flu and I was actually enjoying the early morning hour long loops of my local bri
