Inaugural London Cycle

stats of the week: run 36km, cycled 268km, gym 1.5h

The inaugural cycle race London Ride 100 turned out to be good fun. The weather was perfect, the Surrey landscape beautiful and the cyclists were relaxed. More than 15,000 finishers with an extraordinary female rate of 20% enjoyed cycling through the City of London, Richmond Park, Surrey country roads over Leith Hill and National Trust's Box Hill with a royal finish on the Mall.

There were very few overseas participants but this hopefully will change next year after this successful first time event.

My personal performance was fairly satisfying, clocking 5:48h for the 100 miles lap with 1,000m of altitude difference, with the only downer that I lost about 20min using the crowded food stations.
