(Rant over, advice given). My initial training rides using Florence are presented below. The first ride was with my buddy Ron who I had not cycled with for sometime. Nice.
|Waiting for my wheel ride 38k|
|Wheely good ride (on new wheels) 40k|
Probably wont blog again now until after LEL. On Saturday, I hope to register for LEL purposes and plan to spend the day with SJ, Lunar and Lin. Saturday night I plan to go to Battersea Travelodge where I will hook up with my buddy Chris. Chris would have spent Friday night cycling a 200k night ride 200k audax which would have him finished sometime Saturday morning where he would then have spent time at some cycling festival. The idea is we both flake out early, ready to cycle to Buckingham Palace for the LEL prologue on Sunday. That's right - Chris is going to ride the prologue too, how cool is that! What's not so cool is the weather forecast - SJ informed me that 'wet weekend ahead as MET office issues severe weather warning for the next 3 days with intense rain storms sweeping Britain'.
