100 miles. Done.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored me, in the end I raised £1,785  which is 143% of my original target! It is all going to Cancer Research UK, a great cause.

Fortunately I finished the race in one piece on Sunday with no injuries, crashes or mechanicals to speak of. Although my legs are still a bit sore today! It was a great experience riding with 20,000 other cyclists on closed roads throughout London and Surrey. The hundreds of thousands of people lining the streets certainly helped me to finish in a faster time than I expected. After being in the saddle for nearly 6 hours I’ll never forget sprinting down the Mall towards Buckingham Palace spurred on by the crowds.

Thanks again!
