Have a ride on the 18th- Not a big one- long one or hard one- but it does mean something for me personally. It is the Tour of Britain London Stage and I am doing the Sponsored ride before the main event. The Ride is for Prostate Cancer which I am a recoveree 8 years after surgery.
But the Event is causing me a problem. It is the same day as the Anuual International Pie Ride. Last year I was lucky enough to know the part of London it was being held in and although Various Cafes have closed down since I was last there- I managed to find a superb cafe that sold apple pie. Nearly got lynched when I got back to the assembly area as all the other riders had been able to find was a Starbucks.
The other problem I have is that I have to prepare the OCR for this ride. It is the only one that will take a rack to be able to mount the placard on. None of the other bikes will take a rack but I don't fancy riding those with a 30lbs billboard stuck on the back.
Don't think the report this year will show the Tourist Views- as it is being held in the East End of London. The only tourist point from there is the London Docks and they closed down years ago.
So now onto the other thing that is happening on the 18th. The Pie Ride. I am in training and have been for several week/months/years so I hope that that the training part of the ride will be covered. Just hope I can find a Pie that will merit the occasion.
