London to Brighton - 17th June 2018

After a number of training rides with the Weldon Flyers I decided to take part in the London to Brighton Charity Ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation on 17th June 2018.

Ann and I stayed overnight in the Travel Lodge Clapham Junction after a very enjoyable dinner at an Italian Restaurant nearby.

An early start in the morning from Clapham Common to meet up with the Beaulieu Flyers for a 7.00am start. Unfortunately that turned up late and we did not get going till 7.45am. By the time I was both wet and cold. There were so many riders that it was difficult for us to stay together and I ended up riding on ny own.
