I was always going to have to get to Wiltshire this weekend to visit my mother on her birthday. But the cycling option was in doubt up to the last minute, as the prospect of an 85-mile ride this early in my training was daunting. However, due to a foolhardy competitive streak (my friend and fellow Ride100 cyclist had recently done the ride as his mother, coincidentally, also lives in Wiltshire), I decided to go for it. So, Sunday morning came around and I was on the road at 6.00am.
Jonathan Freeman, Mosaic’s National Director, will be riding the inaugural Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 bike ride, raising funds for Mosaic and The Children’s Trust. Jonathan will be blogging here regularly in the lead up to the race so you can follow his training programme and preparation for the big ride.
