Commuting through north London. When not raining. Or too cold. Seriously, that's it.
That the odd 40 minutes training session on a spinning bike isn't going to cut it as preparation for this.
Reason For Doing This:
Because with scientific research and medicine development come great things. And because it's a chance to do some good, and we don't do nearly enough of that in life. Remember that when hitting the donate button...
Le Cure Highlight:
Two highlights in joint first place: 1) The spectacular scenery. It is quite breathtaking. 2) The sense of camaraderie. It is heart warming and inspiring.
Day 3, wet, cold and with knee pain that wanted to make me give up.
1) Get professionally fitted on your bike. Riding so much in incorrect position may cause you a *lot* of pain.
2) Ride a lot (8+) long (3hr+) rides before the event. Your body will thank you for conditioning it ahead of the real event.
3) It is cooler up top, and you can get cold going downhill. Solution? Arm/Leg warmers which are small and quick.
