Hmmm, 120 miles. That’s equivalent to:

  • London to Birmingham plus fifteen extra miles round spaghetti junction.

Not far then!

>> London:

Martello Street, Mare Street, Church Path, Lower Clapton Road, Powerscroft Road, Chatsworth Road, Lea Bridge Road, Waltham Forest

>>Essex:

Epping Forest, Epping, North Weald, Moreton, Fyfield, Leaden Roding, Great. Dunmow, Great. Bardfield, Finchingfield, Wethersfield, South Hedingham, C. Hedingham, Bulmer Tye

>>Suffolk:

Do you know any of the areas that the ride goes through? Leave a comment with suggestions of what to look out for on the route. We’ll try and take pictures if it is light enough and will post them on the blog during the event! 

If you’re interested in seeing how it all fits together there is a map online at Gmaps Pedometer

See you there!

12 days to go

Posted by stuff4sam on June 26, 2006

Despite the lovely weather over the weekend no tandem riding was done. It was not for the lack of a bike (you'll be glad to hear) but due to various logistical reasons which I won't go into. We have the promise of a bike to practice on next Sunday so watch this space! Many thanks to Tina and Steve for making this possible.

During the week we will be working on general fitness levels so as to keep strong and focussed for the big day (night).

Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far and got the total over £9K! Ten grand here we come!
