Well I have my t-shirt, got my number, now just need to do the miles!
But before Sunday, tomorrow I'm going with my wife, our two girls and a friend, Sally, who works for Eikon to London for the FreeCycle event for a relaxed eight miles or so.
Seems a whole weekend of cycling ahead.

Still we gathered on Sunday morning at Pure Motion Cycles, and set off to tackle a few hills, with the aim of a half-way break at Peaslake.
Having figured that the Vachery Triathlon was taking place we had to make some minor last minute adjustments due to restricted roads but our ride leader knew the area well enough that we soon had a route in mind and set off.
The weather was a little strange with the humidity rising and even a few drops of rain on some of the higher parts of the ride, but we made our stop in Peaslake, as planned. Despite the poor road conditions only suffered one puncture en-route and generally had an excellent ride out and back.

I'd not joined the group before, but was welcomed and appreciated their looking out for me as we rode - turned out to be a pretty fair test for me, having only recently got back to some distance, and I found the pace just a little quicker than my norm. But was thoroughly enjoyable.
According to MapMyRide+ http://mapmyride.com/workout/303809815
- Total Distance: 44.33mi,
- Time: 03:10:32,
- Pace: 4:18min/mi,
- Speed: 13.96mi/h.
All great practice and much needed training for the upcoming event [PruRideLondon-Surrey100/EIKON] and I look forward to getting out again soon.
