The Hairy Biker phase II

So it’s Friday morning and I am about half an hour away from setting off on phase 2 of the Hairy Biker ride which will take me from Woodbridge through Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridge and finally to Peterborough.

Not so much a swingometer – more a rideometer – but here is how the Eastern Angles office are keeping tabs on me over the next few days:-


I was invited onto @stephenfoz @bbcsuffolk drive time programme to talk about the ride on Wednesday. For the next few days you can listen into the interview here (go to 1 hr 43 minutes in). The insuffolk web site have started carrying my daily blogs (having found one of the only known pictures of me in training for the ride). Meanwhile the daily blogs continues here – please feel free to add comments and thoughts (and to improve the standard of cycling jokes which have started to appear!)

So as it stands here is my timetable for the next few days:-

Leave Woodbridge 0930
Leave Sutton Hoo 1115 (The Wuffings, Sutton Hoo Mob)
Arrive Hasketon 1145

Arrive Hacheston 1530
Arrive Bentwaters Parks 1640
