1 Call for sponsorship for my 205 mile ride on Thu 24 Apr 2014, 01:07

I'm riding a 205 mile loop in June as part of an event raising money for glycogen storage disease, all pennies of sponsorship welcome! We have the sports editor for the portsmouth "the news" doing it with us too, so should be good for club exposure if I can get some club kit in some of the shots!

Ride occurred on Sunday. Managed to accrue a £311 in total which was pretty good I reckon!
Meeting up with a support vehicle helped me keep on top of nutrition and fluids nicely, and overall I had a great ride, 208 miles in 12h42m (average of 16.4mph) which I'm not sure is a distance I will ever be repeating. I certainly didn't envisage doing it as quickly as that but those last 50 miles I had so much more left in the legs than I thought I would do.
I did bomb past the club assembled at the George and gave a hello in case you were wondering who that idiot was in the blue/green gear hollering greetings at that time of the morning.

Stats available here http://www.strava.com/activities/151347681 and sponsorship is still open for a bit in case some of you didn't get round to donating...
