At 6am on Sunday the 28th July this year, John and I will set off from Buckingham Palace in London and head North with 1000 other cyclists. Eventually we hope to reach Edinburgh. We’ll then turn around and head back, aiming to reach Loughton on the outskirts of London before 7am on Friday 3rd August. That’s 1450km in just over 120 hours.
Not content to tackle this on normal bikes, we’ll be using a Circe Cycles Morpheus – a kind of half-recumbent/half-normal tandem. Or at least, we were going to be until about a month before the start when we realise that, no matter how much we liked the Morpheus, it wasn’t quite going to work. As a result, Rob will be rolling on a brand spanking new MetaBike (preview here), and John on his usual upright.
Current mental status is: concerned by this unseasonable heatwave.
If you’d rather drop us a note directly, contact details are under the About menu at the top.
