After reflecting on the whole morning, I realised what a fantastic hard time I had just had, and I would like to give you the beer I did not partake in at the finish! Anyway, thanks to all the marvellous marshalls and helpers and organisers, a real pleasure, and if this is to be my one and only sportive, I reckon I was lucky enough to ride the best. I ride for Black Cyclists Network by the way, and I will urge my club mates to enter (early) next year!!
