    Got an entry to the tour.

    Sitting on the computer last night and an "E" mail came in. Looked at it and could not believe my eyes. So I got an entry in and I am riding. Only 1,000 riders allowed to enter so I am glad it was raining last night and I was sitting at the computer as the entries opened.

    Not certain as to whether it came from the tour of Britain or the Prostate Cancer Charity but I don't care. I go to the London leg of the tour each year and I support the Prostate Cancer Charity.

    So do I do it as a Wannabee racer?- or as a Fun entry? Fancy dress is optional so I am looking for A Mannequin to set up on the Tandem as I Only have a single entry. Getting the mannequin is in hand- Setting it up as stoker on the tandem will not be a problem- but I now need a make up artist to get it as a Boris Johnson look alike. Boris is the Mayor of London- and is a cyclist.

    One thing is certain- The 50+ jersey will be seen in London that day.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Careful. That may attract lorries with broken doors.

    Seriously, sounds like a great ride.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    Pictures, pictures, pictures. We will be waiting on pins and needles. Over here, you could probably find a Halloween mask of the Mayor.

    Sounds like you want to do it for fun and not as a wannabee racer, enjoy and send some pics.
