T-35 hours

The first mention of LEJOG on this blog was August 14th, 2009. The first confirmation was December 27th, 2009. That's a while ago.

Since August 14th, according to Training Peaks, I've done 197 hours of road riding, covering 7785km. Plus 57 hours of mountain biking covering 718km. Is that a lot? It seems like a lot. I've done early morning pre-work rides, a 100 mile after work ride, several big Saturday rides in the Cotswolds and a couple of sportives. On the road, I've had exactly one puncture. I've fallen off a few times off-road, but never on-road.

We've put a team of five riders and five crew together, planned a route, raised over £2000 for Air Ambulance (so far...) and spent a scary amount of money with Torq. We've got matching bike shirts and custom t-shirts.

Tomorrow lunchtime we leave Newbury for Land's End. Friday morning, at about 8am, we start riding in a generally Northerly direction.

I'm excited.
