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.
