Ready to Ride from London to Brighton

076

Some of you may know that Clive and I and our two children, James and Lydia, have signed up to cycle from London to Brighton.  A distance of 54 miles.  Not much when you’re very fit or used to plenty of exercise but quite a lot when you aren’t any of those things.  We both started training properly for the ride in June and suddenly it’s nearly time for the challenge.  Further details are in the link below if you fancy supporting us:

Anyway, I feel stronger and fitter than I have felt for a while. A surprising outcome has been firmer arms, hurrah!  We completed our last big ride this weekend, a distance of 38 miles to Shamley Green and back which hopefully should serve us well with the longer distance in two weeks time, fingers crossed.

What do you think of my new sweater?  Whenever we receive a new delivery we try to try everything on, time allowing.  I popped this sweater on and it’s still on!  A beautiful colour and very soft and just the sort of knit I know I will be wearing a lot. £65.00.  This sweater is also available in pale pink, bluebell blue, rust brown and dark grey.
