Pour the water out of your
wellies cycling shoes. Wring out your bibshorts. RideLondon became SwimLondon.
No matter (certainly not to me, sat in the dry in Derbyshire).
I hypothesise that the majority of participants had a great time, irrespective of the weather and the slight shortening of the course.
(And yes, the medal in the photo is from 2013 – I didn’t get a place in the 2014 ballot, though I did get a rain jacket…).
Help Me Test My Hypothesis – Share Your RideLondon Story
I’ve already received a few emails from
drowned rats readers but I WANT TO HEAR MORE!
Let me know in the comments below how your day went: what you enjoyed, what you found tough, how you felt at the end.
If you want, think of it as a short message to your former (pre-RideLondon) self.
Inspire that person to make sure they enter the ballot again at the start of next year (as I intend to).
There Is No Prize For Commenting
Only the warm glow of a job done well and the flickering candle of hope that you too, may inspire someone to pick up a sturdy steel, carbon, alloy, bamboo steed and cycle a long way…
COMMENT! Grazi in advance…
