500 MILES COMPLETED, HONK HONK!

So that’s the first big milestone passed; I’ve done the first 10% of my 5,000 miles, although I’ve only raised 2% of my fundraising target. If you’re reading this, could you maybe direct your friends, families and colleagues to my page at tiny.cc/5000colo? It’d be amazing if you could keep following my progress, and sharing my page with others. Remember I’m @5000colo on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too.

As for the ride itself, a nice loop from Tasburgh today. My new Gatorskin rear tyre, kindly donated by Bicycle Links, feels pretty much indestructible. Tim also lent me a new saddle to try out, and it felt great!

The photo below was taken outside The Fox & Hounds in Great Moulton, a cracking local boozer in the South Norfolk countryside. It wasn’t open today, but I’ll pop back in another time for a mid-ride fizzy pop.

Remember to support your local; so many great pubs are going to the wall, and they need your help more than ever. There’s no better way to connect (or reconnect) with your local community than over a drink or two.
