Total mileage for Juneathon - 50 miles
Today was the day of the Davina Big Sussex Bike Ride - an absolutely brilliant ride around 20, 40 or 68 miles of Sussex country roads (and some busy ones). The ride set off from the East Sussex National Golf Centre at Uckfield and did a nice figure of 8 route, VERY undulating via a feed station at Horam Golf Course (at 20 miles). I was supposed to be riding with my mate Nik and Boxercise Instructor Claire, but unfortunately Nik sprained her ankle the week before so it was just me and Claire
|Before we left - I was a bit nervous|
Davina McCall started us all off on our way - no photos unfortunately, it wasn't allowed. I'd also spotted Jayne Torvill but didn't manage to get a photo of her either. I later found out that Shaun, who had ridden the route after we left, had passed her at some point.
The first 20 miles went quite quickly and it wasn't long before we reached the feed station - a quick wee stop, fill up bottles with water and a jaffa cake and we were soon on our way. It wasn't long after the feed station that I decided to stop and swap my bottles over and add a glucose tab to my water bottle - big mistake! Much to Claire's delight the back wheel of my bike decided to spin and before I knew it, although it was slow-mo action, I was on my arse and sat on the tarmac. My comedy fall has left me with a LOT of bruises and some marks on the Dolce - not happy.
The next 20 miles were fairly uneventful - the hilly bits kept us on our toes and crossing a huge roundabout was a bit scary. When we reached the finished it really didn't feel like we'd just ridden 40 miles.
Our reward for all our efforts - a hot dog or a burger
Good luck fellow 'athoners with week 2 - here's to more squats and some mileage on the Dolce.
