After a bad crash on my bike over a year ago I turned to running, but now I want to rediscover my cycling legs again so I'm taking on a 100-mile charity bike ride from Ilkley with my wife. She was one of 100 women who did the first version five years ago and they're getting back together with family and friends to do it all again and raise money for Marie Curie.
Ran my first marathon with 401-marathons-man Ben Smith to kick start a summer of training.
I'm going to start doing some shorter cycle routes and build up to 50 miles.
With the White Rose Classic just a week away I thought it was time to check out some of the route. Enjoyed a lovely ride in the Yorkshire Dales past Kilnsey Crag (pictured) and Pen-y-Ghent before getting the train back from Settle. Did three of the five climbs - will save the other two for the day itself!
Completed the (very hilly) White Rose Classic ride over 84 miles in 6+ hours - all good, if a bit tired. Next up the 100-miler!
Goal completed with 100-mile ride to Selby Abbey and back for Marie Curie. Well organised, route well marked, fantastic cake stops plus great company and weather!
And, most importantly, fundraising target more than doubled already.
I have always loved cycling but was off the bike for nearly a year after a crash. I took up running as a result and have recently completed my first marathon and a Sprint triathlon. I also get out onto the moors most days for dog walks, whatever the weather.
