UPDATE: I found it tough going (my own fault for not being able to practice the last three weeks) but managed to complete the London to Brighton ride in 04:32:18 "moving time", a distance of 48 miles and an elevation (the uphill bits added together) of 2904ft. Hover your mouse over the graphs in these links to see the details:
NB: There are two entries as I had to swap batteries in my phone at lunch time.
A big thank you to everyone who donated!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Having enjoyed a cycling holiday around the Bordeaux region last year I was recently tempted to sign up for Sky's first London to Brighton challenge, which I'll be completing in record time on Saturday 21st April 2012 ;-).
Knowing what a generous bunch of people you all are, it occurred to me I should try and raise some money for a local good cause and have chosen Ealing's Meadow House hospice.
Any donation will be greatly appreciated - and remember to claim the Gift Aid for them as well.
