St Crispin’s Day Night Ride

On Saturday night I rode 103 miles, through the night, back in time* on the St Crispin’s Day Night Ride from Richmond, into London and then out to Twyford and back. I didn’t even need a Delorean because at 2 am the clocks went back to 1 am again to mark the end of British Summer Time.

The video just covers the part of the ride into London and then out again in the direction of Chertsey and Sheperton.  As it was so dark in the country roads outside of London I didn’t film anything.  My ride back into London on the Sunday morning was a lot less interesting and I haven’t included any snippets of that in the edited video above.

Here are two tweets that I sent during the night:

Would I do it again? Yes, although the stories about the rain last year put me off a bit. The ride raised funds for the Honeypot Childrens’ Charity.

These are (nearly) the last rays of the sun as seen by me earlier this evening.

Time travel

I’m in a warmer part of the world: going South has been like going back in time a couple of months.

Entering your PIN

Can be a bit confusing when the keypad is ‘upside-down’.

Remembering summer

image

Last night we had a reunion of our Oxted to Paris 2014 cyclists, and I prepared some short videos of each day to give to the others. I have put these up in a specific section of this website, here.

#BloodyCyclists

In summer I was cycling in France and as you can see in this video they also have a problem there with cyclists riding two abreast and hogging the middle of the lane!
