I decided to quit Smoking and Took up Triathlon in 2005 as a reason to stay fit, 10 years on I've spent money I've saved on lycra, bikes and pointy hats

Burgess Hill 71 Mile Classic

trilifedbby trilifedbMar 20th 2011
My first Sportive.
The sun came out as we joined the other fat middle aged blokes in lycra and set off.
5 of us stayed together for 1st ten miles or so but pace was a bit rich for me and Dick so we let the other 3 disapear in the distance. The rest of the way Dick was faster down the hills and I was faster up.
My bike computer said 4:27 riding time for 116k, but finished in 5:20 and got a bronze award.
There some tough hills along the way, I even got off and did the walk of shame at 50 miles in.
It was a lovely day and only the 1 puncture. Now back to Marathon training......
