My new bike!

Rod's just built it for me. It's much lighter than my other bike and has bigger wheels, so should be a bit faster. Took it for a test ride on saturday, with Ester (on her light and fast road bike, me on my bike with panniers: we were like race horse and donkey!). Managed to cycle 30 miles in 2hrs20, which is significantly faster than all my other training rides! But we were on straight A roads for most of the time, which makes a huge difference and which I want to avoid on the big ride.

  1. Hi there,

    Good luck and all that. Hope it doesn't rain on you too much and you get to raise a lot of money.

    Take care
