How did this happen???

It doesn’t seem like 5 mins ago that I was thinking, 4 months to go, time for some serious training and time to lose some of this weight (so I don’t have to lug any more than necessary over the hills). and now it’s one month to go – yikes!!!!!

Well, I can confirm yes, I have been training hard but sadly the weight hasn’t gone 😦 boooo. I seem to get the munchies all night after a long ride. So, I guess I’ll have to just continue counting the equipment in grams and cutting down where possible but I won’t be cutting labels out of clothes to save weight like I’ve seen on some forums.

And finally (for now) a question I often get asked “which charity are you doing it for so I can sponsor you?” – the answer this time is I’m not as I’m not convinced I can do the mileage day on day so, if I have a mechanical with the bike or with me then I can jump on the train and come home and will only be letting myself down.

If I had been doing it for charity then it would’ve been for my cousin as he battles against Motor Neurons disease at 26. So if you want to make any donation you could visit

I’ll update recent rides soon…
