Hello everyone, As summertime slowly draws to an end, I hope you are all looking forward to a ‘warm’ Autumn!  This is my first blog, which I have been ‘strongly’ encouraged to write. I’ve spent the last 3 ½ weeks without the boss and I am pleased to say that it will be really nice having her back – I can’t wait to see her amazing pictures from her holiday.

As a group we cycled an incredible combined total of 87,000 miles around the streets of London and beyond thanks to the 540 riders on the 100 route who battled their way up and down the Surrey Hills.

What a brilliant day! The weather was good, the company was friendly and in good mood, the organisation was fantastic (lovely bananas!), there was some unexpected kindness from strangers, oh, and I cycled 26 miles. Actually I cycled 34 miles by the time we factored in the journeys to and from stations. And a couple of hundred extra yards where we misinterpreted the green arrows.
