Thought for the month

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen.” From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, Author (1952-2001)

... charity ride completed

In 3 hours and 12 minutes - including 2 stops at marshall's points for food, drink and more suncream - I have completed the 75 km (50 miles). The route was very well organised with a sign at every turn and confirmatory signs just after a lot of them. There were probably some 30+ marshalls both at check points and also major junctions waving riders across if the road was clear.

It seems that I was able to maintain my usual ~16.5 mph that I do on my 11 and 19 mile standard runs, despite the heat and longer course.

You can see the route at http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?client=firefox-a&hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=108414744479040183848.000487febb81a1bde4948&ll=52.235369,0.96302&spn=0.112487,0.267448&z=12

I need to follow up some sponsorship contributions and anticipate the total going over the (revised upwards) £1,250 target. Many thanks to all my sponsors.
