JP continued the winter training theme on Sunday 20 October by riding in the Wiggle South Downs Sportive. This was a 73 mile route taking in some gorgeous parts of Sussex and Hampshire and by all accounts was a wonderful ride. The only slight drawback was the hurricane that hit the south coast that day – landing just 5 miles from the course start and finish line. This added a somewhat wet and windy element to the day but its all good training! (JP had learnt his lesson from the below and actually bought a waterproof top in advance). A solid 5hr 30 minutes ride, including some punchy climbs – well done JP!
