Blog from James and Ian Foster

Ian and I cannot wait for the Velo to roll around again this May! As we are both keen hockey players we have just seen the end to the 2018 – 2019 season and can now get stuck into the training for the Velo, we both enjoy riding through the Staffordshire and Shropshire countryside whenever we get the chance, and with the 100 miles to cover we definitely need all the training we can get but are never ones to say no to a challenge!

After completing the Velo last time it will be interesting to see how the new course and being in a great team of people turns out this year (fingers crossed for no punctures!) Especially as it is just two weeks before my wedding – I’m under strict instructions to not fall off my bike.

We have both completed numerous sportives over the years and the Velo is yet another event to tick off the list for 2019. So, lets raise as much money as possible for PFK.
