The Finishing Post
As I sit writing this I can't actually believe it is all over. 114 miles (we'll talk about the extra 4 later) in roughly 9 hours (not including rest stops) having climbed in the region of 5,700 feet and burned about 8000 calories!

The Final Countdown
All of a sudden this is all feeling very real and an odd mix of fear and excitement is brewing around our office.

My Vietnamese "training" diary
I am sad to report that I have missed a couple of training rides due to 1) Bath Half getting in the way (got around in 2:10 which I was happy with considering the state of my feet!) and 2) a cheeky trip to Vietnam.
Diary of a trainee cyclist
Solicitor, Bond Dickinson LLP
Welcome to my training diary for Break the Cycle 2016. I am going to try not to be too self-indulgent during this process but at the end of the day it is a diary of my experiences so it is, by its nature, likely to be a bit narcissistic!
