Longest April cycle EVER!

After all the rain, we have been having the last number of days. I wanted to end the month on a high. End it on a high, I did! Just set a new record for the longest cycle in April. I did 65.46 miles, so just bet last April’s record by 0.9 miles. I did want to do a longer cycle, but my left-hand glove has a big hole in it. So my hand was starting to hurt. Also when the sun went down, it was starting to get a bit on the cold side.

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph, route statistics and photos.

Little Bytham “drought” photos

Just to show that where I live, really is having a drought! I better add, that two days ago, you could cycle/drive through that. It’s now the highish I have seen it, in a good while.

Yet another wetsuit cycle. Got to love the British weather

Yet another wetsuit cycle. Hope you are not getting bored of all these wetsuit photos. Maybe when the weather is better, I need to do a cycle wearing my Spider-Man suit :).

Website been playing up (24/04/2012)

Sorry about my website being off-line for most of the morning. The server: prohost7.34sp.com that this website is hosting on has been playing up. I believe that 34SP has fixed the problem. Going by their status page anyway.

But I don’t believe that at all. Since it took me around 15 minutes, just to get this post on-line. Because the website kept going off-line.


Vlog: First multi location vlog, cycling in wetsuit

Here is my first vlog filmed in more than one location, then edited together. Since it was pissing it down, I had my wetsuit on, under my cycling gear.

Check out www.gordon-valentine.com/vlog-locations/ to see the location’s I filmed this vlog.

It was another wet day, so great for wetsuit cycling

Since it’s done just about nothing but rain for the pass two days. I made up my mind to make the most of it and put a wetsuit on and get out a nice cycle :).
