Toby Field London to Brighton Cycle Ride

Got up at 5.15 this morning to meet up with Toby Field has he is taking part in the London to Brighton Cycle ride with his friend Darren, it was good to meet up in person as opposed to in cyberspace. There start time was 8am but they never got away till after that. I have to say a big up to Toby for taking this challenge on as he has only been cycling since march Toby's First cycle. Back in march when he started he could not have envisaged three months later he would be taking part in the London to Brighton. Well done mate you have done brilliant. Seeing you today as made me even more determined to get fit and get back on my bike. I have never seen so many different bikes folding,mountain,BMX,racing,etc, I even saw two blokes on a tandem one of them had his artificial leg strapped to the bike. Well done to all the people taking part.

Time taken 6 Hours 20 Minutes

Just a quick note on my injury front my arms are getting better but I still get caught out, I forget sometimes which must be a good sign, but twist my arm slightly then I remember oh yes I remember ok. Go back to the Hospital to see the consultant 5th July
