One Year Time Trial

This is not me riding! Nope, this sort of distance will have me heading for the nearest duvet at the mere thought.

Steve Abraham, a nice British long distance cyclist, is aiming at the very long standing year record this year. He started in the wee small hours of New Year’s Day – while the rest of us were under our duvets after partying and will be riding every day this year. He’s already broken 2000 miles so far, which is my yearly target for this year so feeling a tad inadequate already this year.

We wish him the best of luck, beating Tommy Godwin‘s record, set in 1939, of 75,065 miles. The record was set on a steel 4 speed bike. Steve has something a little sexier but then he has a lot more traffic etc to cope with too.

His website is HERE. Have a look, you can follow him on Strava too.

Go Steve!

About RosieRosie

RosieRosie is a woman of a 'certain age' - whatever the hell that is supposed to mean, known. I feel about 26. I have no idea what I look like as some older woman keeps getting in the way when I look in the mirror. Married, to someone who is a bit indifferent towards me. I have a proper wanderlust and have finally moved - using the housing exchange system from - where I started in Inverness, down to Cornwall. It's taken since September 2011, when I left Inverness until March 2016 to get to Cornwall. That's not too shoddy with a swap here and a swap there, saving up again for each move. I am going to move again though. I can't handle the hills. My knees are 10 years too old for around here. Not ruling out Cornwall in the future but, for now, my riding is suffering. I love my bikes, I love my dogs and I love guitars. They all keep my busy.
