Another Saturday and another long training bike ride. Just over 37 miles in fact!

It was an interesting one, as myself and Thomas cycled to my Dad’s place in Deptford and back! He was quite surprised to see us, but he came up trumps with Tea and cakes!

Today I am going to give everyone a day off from moaning about the sponsorship for the bike ride. Next week though, I won’t stop banging on about it!

Yesterday’s landmark picture was the Gherkin. Dave Timoney quickly responded last night with the correct answer of Searcy’s being the private club.

Today’s poser is of Blackfriars new railway station.

The bridge that the station sits on is of course Blackfriars bridge today, but what was it previously known as?

My 4 hour cycle ride took up most of the day, but thankfully, since returning, I’ve been able to squeeze in some pies, mash and liquor before starting to settle down for what will hopefully be a great champions league final. Although it hurts to say, I wish Chelsea all the very best, as my family and close friends will all be otherwise very disappointed. It’s turning out to be great day for Millwall fans with West Ham returning to the Premiership. Doh!

There are now 69 days to the Olympics.

Yesterday’s blog event was related to William Smith, who won gold in Wrestling for the USA. Dave Timoney deserves a special mention, as he actually gave me every William Smith who has ever won an Olympic gold! I have to challenge whether that was time well spent?

Today’s event requires the competitors to legally have one foot on the ground when they take off and the individual cannot have more than 11 spikes?

The highlight of the day has to go Thomas on our bike ride, who somehow sailed up Spa Hill near Crystal Palace, whilst I nearly had a heart attack! The strength of youth.
