The challenge will be to ride the 125 miles in 12.5 hours.
The significance of 125 I hear you mutter……….. 😕 😕
I am doing this ride with 2 guys who work for Marks and Spencer, which is currently celebrating its 125 years anniversary and during this time is raising funds through events for a charity which it supports, namely Teesside Hospice.
If anyone wishes to join us, feel free.
The date will be Sunday July 19th.
Start times are still awaiting confirmation, but it will be around the 0700hrs I would imagine.
There is no pressure to acheive sponsorship but any donations would be gratefully received.
Further details to be posted as arrangements progress.
Much as I’d love to join you I’ll be in the Alps. I’d love to say I’ll be thinking about you but I’ll have enough on my plate getting up those bloody big hills.
As for 12.5hrs for 125 miles that’s more than enough for a leisurely ride. Just looked on my Garmin and my actual riding time (minus stops for refeshments and slashes) was 6hrs 17mins so I’d say you’ll have plenty of time if your mates are your standard.
Hope the weather’s nice and there’s no bloody wind
Sounds interesting.What are you planning in way of training for this ? Just increase your ride distance over the next couple of months ? I might be interested in this,what are you planning on doing for food ? You will need a good few pasties to get round this one,but i’m guessing with 12.5 hours you could possibly fit in a cafe stop for lunch.
