Peter: Last but one session of a busy week training completed and feeling pretty good. Leg injury is mending I still get a stabbing pain every so often but nothing like it was, so happy days. Saved the worst training bike ride to the end of this week as we troop off down to the New Forest for a quick 80 miler. The organisers have indicated that this is a far easier ride than the brutal Surrey ups and downs of two weeks ago – we shall see!!

Count down to the main event is really on now very few days left for training before the real thing.. I’m actually really looking forward to it cannot wait to get started – let’s just have a blast!
