No cycling this week and a worthy cause!


I’ve spent the last week and a half following my favourite band, Steel Panther, round the country on their Irish and then their UK tours and in between, frantically working, so have had no time to go out cycling at all.

Next week things return to normal and I’ll be back out on rides as much as I have time for, assuming no snow or ice. I’ve had a fabulous time gigging but am totally missing my cycling.

On a more important note, my sportive riding mate, Andy, is taking part in the UK Police Unity Tour 2018 between 27th and 29th July 2018. 100 Police service members are cycling from the National Police Memorial on the Mall in London to the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire. Sounds like a really good challenge!

Andy is raising money for Care Of Police Survivors, who help the families of Police Officers killed in the line of duty. A cause I’m sure everyone will agree is very worthwhile!
