London to Brighton

Well, on the hottest day of the year so far, me and 26,999 other silly people decided to ride from Clapham common to Brighton in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

54 miles in 30 + degress so anyone else out there who did it with us, congratulations! for those who didnt do it, im still taking sponsorship money!

I really really hate Ditchling beacon now and never want to see it again but we rolled in just under 5 hours allowing for a few drink stops.

now i dont have to train for this anymore maybe i can spend more time on the water

Nice one!

I fell asleep under the shade of our apple trees after a couple of beers!

If you PM an address, I'll send you a donation to add to your sponsorship. Don't forget to let me know who to make the cheque payable to.
