Reading Ride-It tomorrow

Just a quick post – I’ve already said I’m doing the Reading Ride-It tomorrow (the 30miler). Thank god I managed to contact Annie – who rode the last of the LadyCat with me – and I’ll be able to meet her there. This is brilliant as we pretty much ride at the same pace and she was great to have a laugh with!

I also seem to be supporting Endura (clothing) single handedly – bought a mens small racing jersey, and fingerless gloves from and already own a hi-viz jacket. The mens racing jersey was 50% off – even though the bloke on the till had no idea they had a sale rail!! Happy days!

I also have my Magnificat bib shorts – they are perfect! Wonder if I’ll be able to wear them tomorrow?!?!

The ride tomorrow doesn’t seem as well organised as Wiggle’s Magnificat last weekend. Maps of the route still haven’t appeared in my email inbox – and have failed to get a reply after emailing them. Thankfully they have maps there tomorrow.

I’d also like to point out that I’m not having a dig at them! And I understand about pre riding the ‘course.’

Anyway, hopefully the rain stays away…
There is always wishful thinking…


Sportif LadyCat route

Hey guys, this is a map I’ve found of the Wiggle ‘LadyCat’ on Sunday June the 3rd starting at Newbury racecourse (yes I certainly know my way there alright!), if you are interested!

It starts off with a nice 10% hill… lovely!

I vaguely know the roads, so hopefully won’t get overly lost 🙂

Suppose I’d better get on on the bike in a bit, thats the great thing about having a week off work, I can actually go out when I want to!


Sportif on Sunday Alert!

Whilst driving back through Newbury on Sunday, I saw a sign warning of Traffic Delays, and one for the Wiggle Magnificat Sportif on sunday. Oooo looks interesting I thought, so duly did a bit of reaserch. Even better there is a LadyCat option – perfect for me, having never done a Sportif before! Hopefully I will find some other people I know who are doing it!

keep smiling 🙂
