Velothon Wales, Silverstone 9up TTT & Championship Sportive

In the last 3 weeks I have taken part in 3 cycling events the Velothon Wales, a 9 up TTT at Silverstone F1 track & The Championship Sportive in Lincoln.

The Velothon Wales was a closed road sportive which started and finished in Cardiff, this was a great event with the local community coming out and supporting the event.

Next up was the Silverstone 9up TTT this event is run and organised by my cycling club Bicester Millennium Cycling Club (BMCC) I was in the B team and we also competed as a vets team as we realised all of us were over 40, we came second the vets category. There is also a video of us which one of the other riders took and can be seen here

Finally last weekend I did the Championship Sportive in Lincoln, which finished with the cobbled climb up Michaelgate, as the British National Cycling Championships were held the next day Michaelgate was set up ready with barriers, plenty of spectators lind the streets cheering us on up the hill which created a great atmosphere.
