One down, one to go

On Sunday July 7th, I completed the Etape du Tour - stage 20 of this years Tour de France!
It involved cycling 130km (85 miles) over the Alps, including around 4,000m of climbing and approximately 35,000 pedal revolutions! In all, 8 hours, 34 minutes of effort, and without doubt the toughest physical challenge I have ever undertaken!

It feels great to have it completed :)

With that one under my belt, I now face the LondonRide100 in 3 weeks time - cycling 100 miles across London. Starting from the Olympic Park, we head to the Surrey Downs following the London Olympic course, and back to a finish on the Mall.

Huge thanks to everyone has has sponsored me, sent me luck and best wishes and generally supported me along the process. In total I've now raised £1,925 for Macmillan.

Many thanks, and I'll let you know how I get on after I complete the London event!


ps. Please support Macmillan and give me all the more reason for pushing our those extra miles!
