Staffs to Snowdon Update: 40 Days To Go!!!

It is starting to dawn on me know that in only 40 days I will be attempting my challenge.

Have I done enough training?
Am I ready?

Well I suppose we will find out soon enough.

I just want to thank those who have supported me along the way, and a special thanks to Anne who has endured my every increasing cycling program. Not once has she complained about the amount of time I’m spending out on my bike. Nor has she said anything about the endless upgrades and ‘must have’ bits of kit and bike parts that seem to be never ending.

And to those who have shown their support through sponsorship, thanks for every penny that you have donated.

My riding events have been going really well. I a MTB Marathon in Wantage a few weeks ago. I did this on my cross bike which was a mistake and made all the more painful knowing that my mountain bike was back at the campsite. Oh well, another lesson was learnt. I won’t make the same mistake on the next event in this series down on Exmoor on July 8th.

But before then on the 24th June I have the ‘Yorkshire True Grit’ which is a 100km gravel riding event. I will be looking to maintain an average speed of 20kph which is a respectable 12.5 mph. This should see me finish the event in 5 hours riding time.

So that is it for now, just more of the same grinding out the miles, keep on attacking those hills and keep the legs spinning.

I know it is all working, and it will all be worth it, but the prospect of my challenge as it gets closer is looking like a bad idea. Anyway to late to back out now, not that i want to.

My next post I will share my planned route and times with you for the big day.
