I started cycling aged 43 on a mountain bike.

After a couple of year’s pottering around, thinking I was the bee’s knees because I could ride 45 miles a week, I rode the coast to coast in Northern England for charity and loved it.

 

Soon after that I bought a road bike and at the age of 47 I started racing road time trials and found that I wasn’t too shabby at it.

 

In my second season I broke the hour for 25 miles. Towards the end of the same season I broke 2 hours for 50 miles.

 

I was soon riding in National Championship events at 50 and 100 miles.

 

In 2007 age 51 I rode the National 12 hour Championship almost collapsing at the end. This was by far the hardest thing I’ve done in cycling, it was absolutely mind blowing, racing alone for 12 hours, every part of my body was screaming with pain, even my hair.

 

 

Here is a list of my personal best and average speeds.

 

12 Hours        238.1 Miles            383km               19.85mph       31.94km

 

10 Miles         22mins 01sec        16.093km             27.3mph      43.93km
