I have done some crazy things in my time on this planet, but taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 on Sunday was nothing more than breathtaking.
The weather was described as 'biblical' in places as we braved the tail end of hurricane Bertha. I cannot begin to wonder what the real hurricane would have been like.
Anyway I finished the shortened ride of 86 miles in 4:55:16 which bodes really well for next year. I think I really can do it in under 6 hours, which was my goal all along.
Just to make sure I did do it, I downloaded the proof from the official website
