Just a week to go until I get on my bike and now 35 miles is beginning to look a little daunting.
Who hasn’t had their eyes glaze over when friends post cycle routes on Facebook showing Sunday jaunts of 50 or even 100 mile round trips to sample tea and cake in Suffolk and still sprint home for a PB?
On Saturday I am hoping to complete the 35 miles from Stevenage FC to Cambridge FC having never ridden more than a total of 10 miles in my entire life.
To give me some confidence the stars at Odyssey Gym in Knebworth have set me up a three week crash (not even a pun) course to get my legs and backside adjusted to sitting in the saddle for quite some time. Using a bike with the technogym key, a rowing machine and then a Wattbike for free cycling it has started to make sense and while the 35 miles, in aid of the Stevenage Ladies FC and their tenancy at Codicote FC will still be a long way for me, it is made worse by the fact I will almost certainly do it on a mountain bike!
Should you be inclined to support me, and £1 at a time is fine, then please follow the link, and there’s a bottle of fizz for the person who get closest to my actual finish time so make those predictions!
And if you feel like turning over a new fitness leaf then get on your bike and get down to Odyssey Gym.
