Vlog: Yet another 200 miles on the bike! And even more fun!

Had another great week on the bike, ended up doing my second 200 mile week of this year so far! Also done another two, 50+ mile cycles! Had a mate up doing photos! Plus starting to think, what I will be doing for my 41 birthday! Goal is 82 mile cycle!

First Century ride (The EU version!) of 2020

So pleased with myself! At long last, I’ve done my first Century ride of 2020! But it was easy one, the 100km one! Wish it had been the 100 mile one! But still super pleased with 62.52 miles!

Finished the End to End cycle 11 years ago!

Would you believe it?!?!? It was a whole 11 years ago today, that I finished doing the End to End cycle. A cycle covering 990.30 miles, which of course took me from John O’Groats to Land’s End.

Even after 11 years, would still rate it has one of the best things, that I’ve ever done! Really hope, that one day, I get to it again!

Here are, just some of my favourite photos from the cycle.

First half century cycle of 2020!

So pleased with myself, just done my first half century cycle of 2020! So in other words 50 miles! Not just 50 kilometres (31 miles), that most of Europe does! Now I really need to aim for 80 miles next! Then really, really hoping, I can get a 100 mile cycle in before the year is out!
