Sponsorship, Velodromes and Hair

Cycling news:
Well, things are hotting up we are almost only 1 month away from the big day. So what is coming up you ask ? well – This Sunday there is another long ride coming up. I will be riding the London Cycle Sportive, which is another ride that takes in Box Hill (yet again) but the exciting part is the ride finishes with a lap of the Herne Hill Velodrome. So a bit like Paris-Roubaix we get to bomb round the track after a 60mile ride out in Surrey.

I have now decked out the names of my sponsors on the bike so a huge thankyou to all those who have made a donation so far. Your names are stuck on the bike frame and I will be drawing on those stickers for inspiration in a months time.

Thanks to all my sponsors.

Thanks to all my sponsors.

I would also like to say a special thanks to BlackHorse Apiaries who have sponsored me. If you are ever interested in learning about Bee keeping, or just interested in the craft – give them a call. They run a number of practical and theory courses and have a wealth of knowledge and resources on all aspects of keeping bees.

So tonight is the night !!! after me stupidly offering to get my legs waxed for this ride, tonight the hair comes off. (I blame the Italians – and them making me do it) Hopefully it will not be as painful as I am imagining. (It can’t be as bad as getting stung by a bee – right ? ) on the other hand it may be as bad as getting stung by a swarm of bees. (have experience of both of these events).

  1. Sadly, I cannot be there to help “shredding” your legs. That said I will be happy to increase my contribution to the cause on evidence of completely shaved legs
