Another beautiful ride around Gloucestershire with Dad, complete with pub lunch (2 drink minimum) and puncture, was the last long distance training ride I’ll be doing before the off in 6 days time. I am as prepared as I am going to be, I just hope it’s enough. My legs are quite short. I don’t have brilliant lung capacity. And I’m a bit scared of going too fast on Rusty Bob. I’m not built for speed so I fully expect to be bringing up the rear most days. But, I have been working hard on making my short legs strong, so hopefully they will get me the distance.
The hotels and ferry are booked, the crew and rider handbooks issued, the routes sorted and a venue for the finishers party found. It’s taken us the best part of 9 months to pull this together, and so far the BBB team of riders has raised an amazing £24,464.95 (70% of our target) for Bliss!
So, all that remains is to get Rusty Bob serviced, pack a few things, eat several kilos of pasta and ride to Paris.
Rusty Bob now has Bob Cam installed so, internet connectivity and camera skills allowing, I’ll be posting updates along the way. If you’d like to help us reach our £35,000 target, please donate at www.justgiving.com/rebecca-pointer
