I think that it would be true to say that not completed any serious training for this event that takes place on Sunday. It has crept up on me rather suddenly and I will need to carry out some last minute prep before I set off early on Sunday morning.
My only real prep has been the few night rides to the coast i have been on this year, some Brompton rides, errands and the odd bit of commuting. I do feel I will be okay however (despite getting over a head cold) and more than capable of completing the 100 miles. (Famous last words).
I would imagine that some the lycra brigade will be treating the event as if they were at that famous bicycle race with French origins. They are welcome to do so as long as they don't come too close to me, endanger others or mind when at 75 miles in, I glide past because they have run out of steam.
My Ride100 will be completed the sensible way, on an Orange Brompton and I am very much looking forward to it. There will be a few of my fellow small wheeled brother ands sisters doing the same and I really hope that I see a few. If you are taking part, see a chap in orange dinging the distinctive sound of a Brompton bell, it might be me!
The route looks to be pretty good and the only real concerns I have at the moment is how to negotiate my way to the start as there are several road closures and only one real way to get to it. Apart from that, I am good to go.
Until next time, stay safe out there people!!
