My first day on a road bike was in July 2010 in the pouring rain, wondering what I was doing while waiting to start my ride from John O’Groats to Lands End while a deep sense of regret set in about my lack of training prior to such a challenge. Since that day, cycling has taken me across several countries, up Alps and to the occasional race win (not to mention a few hospital trips).

Now taking on the Velo Birmingham for a great charity with other like minded chaps in the PFK teams is a great opportunity and something I’m relishing the chance to be a part of. The enthusiasm and support Property For Kids have shown in the lead up to the big day is admirable and a credit to the good work they do. Now the event is closing in it’s time to get some good training in, but as the adage goes: It never gets easier, you just go faster!
