Day Two – Cycle 250 – Nottingham to Stratford

Day two, what can I say, we made it to Stratford!

I have never felt so weak after exercise than when we arrived in Stratford and I stood next to my bike, contemplating taking the few steps to the mini bus where everyone had gathered. 87 miles on the road today, to be able to say that now brings about a sense of pride but my legs are aching thinking about it.

Day One - Cycle 250 - Sheffield to Nottingham

Hills, hills, hills…

The moment we left our base at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield we were pumped, the entire team was cheering, ringing their bells and had plenty of energy about them. 30 miles in, it was a whole different story. Complete silence, heads down and a mass of seriously tired cyclists! To make light of the tough times, in and amongst the steep inclines of Yorkshire were quaint little villages where the locals would wave and yell hello as we cycled through, which was really nice to see. There were moments of absolute agony as we rode up and up and up, along with moments of complete tranquillity and peace as we passed our way through the countryside.
