When I was out with my partner in crime Andrew on Bank Holiday Monday, one of the things we talked about was the Ride46. I was telling him that I had not got into the Ride100 and could not remember whether or not I had entered the Ride46? I thought about this for a while and said that I probably did. Well last Friday I found out that I had actually got in.
Fortunately I also got a place on the Ride46 in 2016 - which I think was the first year it was put on. Back then I completed the event on my (steel yourself for this) Condor road bike. I really did enjoy using it but I did say to myself afterwards that if I was ever lucky enough to get in again, it would be on a Brompton.
I am not really sure which of my Brompton bicycles I would take with me at the moment but whichever one it is I am sure to have a great deal of fun. I don't even think that using the Brompton will result in me completing the course that much slower.
In a week or so I will be able to select a possible start time and nearer to the actual event I will head down to Excel in East London and collect my ride number and bits and pieces.
It is all rather exciting and I have to confess to looking forward to it. Below I have provided a link to my blog post for when I took part in the Ride46 back in 2016.
