The route was via Eastbourne and I had OCC for company. By the time I got home the mileage was 122. It was tough though, very hilly. We made two stops:
And Alfriston. I was too busy drinking hot chocolate to take a picture.
We rode along Eastbourne seafront.
And then up to Beachy Head.
The biggest climb of many for the day. The end of the working week had seen torrential rain; the day promised more of the same. Thankfully it held off until after I got home; the weather had been great to be honest. Cloud cover had kept the sun at bay, but the temperature comfortable. And the wind, even on the coast, was light.
Contrary to what you might think, I find sleep difficult after a long ride. I'm on a high from the immense feeling of satisfaction. It's normally the following afternoon when I fall asleep in front of the television.
A big thank you to everyone who sponsored me. Moof IT made a very generous donation, they have helped me to cope with what life has thrown at me. Because of the help and support of family and friends I can enjoy days like this.
