Aside from your TR plan(s) and the races you’ve got scheduled, what is THE ride(s) that you just won’t miss and why?
Mine is the local Cyclist Fighting Cancer ride that happens every May. It’s a sportive with a choice of routes up to 150 miles (I do the century route) and as the name suggests, it’s a charity ride for cancer research.
I was diagnosed with cancer just over four years ago, although I had supported the ride before my diagnosis, it has become close to my heart for obvious reasons.
It’s not a race, just a chance to stop at every feed station and eat your body weight in lovely cake. It’s a great chance to chat, roll around and meet people.
So, what about you folks? Is it a cycling holiday with friends, a coffee stop Sunday with the local club? What is that ride you just have to be on?
