london to brighton cycle ride

28 Jun

A break from the TV agenda, to let you see a “photo-essay” on a wonderful day raising money for the British Heart Foundation. One of the things about the day is that it’s a “ride” and not a race. People ride too fast, yes, but that definitely doesn’t include us. We left at 7am, and arrived at 5.30pm. I was thinking of phoning ahead for a B&B. We also stop far too often, obviously allowing our muscles to cool down inviting injury and the prospect of pulling in for another pit-stop. It’s a wonderful, sociable day, with terrific support from locals along the way. It will surprise you.

I heartily recommend the ride to anyone.
