August Challenge Update


August was another great cycling month. The highlight was easily our trip across Wales – something I had wanted to do for a long time. Beautiful, mountainous and quiet roads and my brave wife enduring 8 hard days on the bike. 5 days in the Vanoise Alps at the beginning of August and the Gruyere Cycling Tour were the other obvious highlights.

At about 124,000 metres of ascent I have now passed my original challenge (I revised it up to 160,000 metres in June).

While I remain well ahead of schedule, the weather will dictate how difficult the last part of this 2007 challenge will become.

Happiest while cycling uphill. More enthusiastic than talented, my 2014 Challenge is to cycle 50 great rides, slowly.
