Yesterday I competed in a 68 mile race that began and finished at a brewery. You have to have nerves of steel to compete in cycling as I rode at speeds of 40 miles an hour sitting within inches of other cyclists' wheels. I averaged 24 miles an hour and completed the course in 2:48.
It was a really good ride on a lovely summer's day.
Here is the race courtesy of Lea's photos!
