Just confirmed - we got a start time of 00:30 which means we get the whole day 😀

Dawn is really early, so we'll only have a few hours in the dark. Can be very very cold at night, even in June...

Nope, I'm still out!

I entered the ballot for the 2020 Prudential RideLondon event today. Fingers-crossed that I'll get an opportunity to ride 100miles around Surrey and central London on closed roads next August. :bounce:

Thank you Mr. B.

I first have to have my name pulled out of the hat an I suspect the odds of getting a slot aren't great.

Short ride out in 0°C and a decent breeze this morning. Pretty flat, nice lanes but low speed as a lot of standing water about...

Not sure if this is a known issue, but my Garmin Vivoactive 3 watch says I did 170 MTRS of climbing but the Garmin Edge+ on the bike says 270 MTRS. They always seem to disagree by quite a lot...
