I got a place! I told my mum (she’s in Girlguding too). She was really pleased, she asked me how my training was going. I sent her this picture:
This was taken by my very helpful and supportive fiancé (and bike-riding buddy) Will. He cycles (thankfully) so has been helping me start to clock up my mileage.
Evidently, hills are a bit of an issue. I checked out the route from last year’s RideLondon. There are hills.
We live in Oxfordshire, so whilst not exactly mountainous, there are hills aplenty. Today, I felt like there were too many hills!
So, the training has begun. I’m trying to not eat too much chocolate and I have swapped my running for cycling every other day/three times a week. I’ve set up my fundraising page!
I would be delighted by any support (and wishes of luck!).
