As I have probably mentioned in previous posts I will be trying to do as many cycling events as possible from now on. As my fitness improves over time I feel that I can do bigger and better things.
I've currently got myself entered into 2 major events already for next year, maybe a 3rd. NightRider 2013 , IG Nocturne Folding Bike Race & The Dunwich Dynamo 2013
(19th January 2013)
(8th -9th June 2013)
This event is a charity bike ride around London taking in all the sights but with a difference. It's going to be though the night. Be passing through Tower Bridge, a deserted City of London, Canary Wharf, London Zoo, Piccadilly Circus, British Museum, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and more.. It promises to be a damn good night right and as always my partner in crime Mr.O will be right there with me :) We both managed to get the same start time and location at Alexander Palace. Maybe a few more from the London Brompton Club will be coming along too.

The Dunwich Dynamo is a 200 km night ride from London to the lost city of Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast. From 1992 to 1998 it ran as commercial pay-to-enter event. In 1999 it became free -just-turn-up-and-ride. This Successful format has continued since 2000.
Setting a date for an informal 'turn-up-and-ride' event - on the Saturday night nearest a full moon in July.
This last event I will definitely have to have a really big think about but as someone said that I could gauge my fitness for this from how I do on the other events I'm entering as well as the London Brompton Club Rides that I will be going on too.
2013 looks like its turning out to be a pretty busy cycling for me and I only got 2 words to say to it all
forget the 'really big think' on the DD - just turn up and do it. I did it for the first time on my Brompton in 2011 - the longest I'd done before that was around half the distance and I was not-particularly-fit 46-year old at the time. Loved every minute of it and was back for the 2012 ride (as a not-particularly fit 47-year old).ReplyDelete
