Got to say that Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle 2018 was so much fun! The weather could not have been better, was dry, mainly sunny, but a bit on windy side at times!

It was even better, since this year, since I talked a mate into joining me! Hello Mark! He enjoyed it, so much! He said, he’s more than up for joining me next year! Let’s just hope, he does not come off his bike next year!

We did 35.73 miles, I was hoping to do more… Then Mark, has not been doing that much cycling this year, so his body, is not fully use to doing longer cycles. He’s now got a year, to get himself ready for next years event!

That sure was a great cycle! Did 62.43 miles, so making it the second longest cycle of the year so far! It could well be my favourite cycle, of 2018! Since I cycled along part of the  Grantham Canal. Then stopped off at Bottesford, to get some food, and also check out it’s railway station!

Then it was off to Elton and Orston railway station, which is one of the least used stations in the UK. It only gets two services a day. One to Nottingham at 6:25am and other service to Skegness at 5.10pm. There is no Sunday service. A normal service operates on most bank holidays.

Then it was back home passing Belvoir Castle! So over all, a great cycle!!

Yes happy days yet again! My second cycle of 2018, has just been done! Also did more miles than yesterday, today I did 20.93. So now my monthly total stands at 39.3 miles. Which is not, that bad at all really!

Since it was still cold, I was wearing my O’Neill 5/4 Mutant wetsuit under my cycling gear again!

Happy days! That’s me just done the first cycle of 2018! It was a bit on the cold side, had to really watch out for ice on the roads! Gong by my Garmin Edge 1000 the average temp temperature 0.4°C. I am sure it was a wee bit warming than that!

Since it was cold, I was of course wearing a wetsuit under my cycling gear! This time it was the O’Neill 5/4 Mutant wetsuit.

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!
