London to Southend bikeride 14/07/2002

When I agreed to do the London to Southend bike ride with Wendy we agreed to enter on the day, in case it was chucking down with rain. On the day I also packed a lot of waterproof kit.

So imagine our surprise when the day turned out to be a real scorcher. The route was about 58miles long and started at Victoria park and went up past Chelmsford before getting to Southend.

There were hardly any hills to spoil our day and we even got a free banana along with our medal at the finish.
