Having successfully run 13 miles, I’m now fairly sure I can cycle 100. That’s how fitness works…right? No? Well, never mind – for I have already overcome my first obstacle!
When I agreed to cycle 100 miles, I did so without possessing a bike. Although I still don’t own a buy, the wonderful Mr. Eric Charleston has offered to lend me his road bike, upon which he cycled from Wycombe to Paris in a day!
I am delighted and honoured to borrow this bike and cannot wait to take it out on the wide open road.
The road will, however, have to wait until I return from travelling Eastern Europe with the Emperor and Grand Vizier of Murderbeers. We leave on the 4th and will be home by the 22nd.
