106 miles! In the bag!

A full English, banana bread, wild blackcurrants, ham egg and chips, a few big climbs such as that into Brill and Chinnor Hill, cramp, energy bars, a few pints of real ale and we did it!  Our longest yet.

We almost followed the route below with a few detours, its a great ride, some beautiful scenery.

Its been a while.

The adventure is long gone and Dick & Nick are still amazed at the generosity of their friends and family - over £2500 raised between them for three very good causes.  Thanks and well done to everyone, its really appreciated.

The boys were back in the saddle at 0600 this morning for a pre-work 'cobweb blow-out' view our trail here  . 28 miles a glorious morning, two punctures and a fall-off!.  Dick put in  some awesome bursts of power along the way to take the yellow jersey.  Nick is asking for a urine sample...

So what next?  Recreational riding and holidays beckon then the boys will be embarking on a wee adventure in September - 100 miles in a day but we're not sure where yet.

Have a great weekend!
