Starting May 27th I will be repeating the 2005 expedition but this time in just 9 days (last time we took 10). Although I have ridden higher daily mileages OR more days this is the first time I have ever tried to do 9 consecutive 100 milers.
I am riding with some work colleagues who are all virgins as far as long distance cycle touring is concerned. I have maturity (who laughed) and experience on my side but they have youth and vigour – they are between 11 and 17 years my junior.
We catch the morning train to Penzance then quickly nip down to Land’s End for the ritual photos before returning to Penzance for the night. We then start the real work on Saturday. At the moment the weather for the weekend is mixed news: wet (bad) but with strong winds from the SW (very very good).
