It rained pretty much non-stop with snow on one particular day, but despite this we did manage to get a few miles in (although some of them ended up at the best cake shop in the whole of the UK - The Apple Pie in Ambleside - Bath buns and Hot cross buns are from another world!!).
We were impressed with the number of cyclists we saw whizzing about, and in all fairness, some of the hill climbs we walked up have given us an indication of the fitness levels needed to motor up them on a cycle. It's not going to be easy from the route we're following on race day.
We also met up with Sam and her family for a quick jaunt. Was a nice 18 mile ride and a mooch around Ferry Meadows country park. It's a tribute to the cycle ways around the Green wheel that can largely get you around the city of Peterborough and surrounding towns safely without needing to travel on many roads.
We've also had great news that a number of other participants are joining our team for race day.
It seems palliative care and it's current state is making headlines in the news (see this BBC article), so this really is a worthwhile cause so please donate if you can.
We're also hoping to go live on twitter very soon, so keep an eye out on our tweets.
