Since it’s getting to the time of year, that I start doing less cycling. Due to it being colder and getting less daylight. I’ve been looking at the data again from the End to End cycle. that I did back in August 2009.

I am still really hoping to do it again in 2019! But we will see what happens!

That’s me not long back in from doing the longest cycle on the bike so far! I did 36.45 miles! I would have liked to have done over 40 miles! But all the rain, wind and even the hail was starting to do my head in! It’s feeling more like February, than late April! I am normally out in my shorts by now! It’s still way, way to cold for that!!
