BHF 66 Mile Bike Ride

Today I rode 66 miles in 4 hours 43 minutes and raised £666.20 for the British Heart Foundation. I am so chuffed with myself as I rode it an hour quicker than I thought I would. Poor James didn't have the best of Fathers Day's as he was on photography duty and was driving around trying to get some piccies.

 At the start of the day. The sun was shining and I was feeling very apprehensive as I have never taken part in a bike ride like this before.
 I met up with Andy Petty and his friend Ben!
 This is coming out of Holt just before going over the cattle grid! Don't look at my fat middle!
 Not sure where this was - bit blurry! Must have been going so fast!
 I did most of the second half of the ride with Andy and Ben, although we did lose Ben just after Witchampton!
And here is me at the end with my medal! I got really emotional as I went over the line. I was so pleased with my pace and my ride time. Two weeks is the Macmillan ride which is 60 miles.

I also thought I would post up a photo of Zoe who lost both her top front teeth on Tuesday.
