Few who saw the images of Yorkshire in the 2014 Tour De France – Grand Depart can forget what an incredible spectacle it was. Wall to wall sunshine rewarded the spectators who lined literally every inch of the race from start to finish. Its legacy is The Tour De Yorkshire.
We are incredibly fortunate in that the riders pass our front door on day 2. Setting off from Tadcaster on the 29th April, we are just 3 miles down the road from the start in Boston Spa. We will watch the Women race pass about 9.30am and then the men at about 1.30pm. In between the BBQ will be roaring and friends popping in and out throughout the day.
No alcohol for me however…..the following day I will be in the saddle for 100km for the amateur Sportive race. Keep an eye out for number 0853!! http://letour.yorkshire.com/sportive
This is an important part of my training as I edge towards the bigger goal of being the primary support rider for another FBO Matt Turnbull. In mid-July, Matt undertakes an incredible challenge to complete the Ironman distance 7 times in 7 days. Some people say he is insane…..he would probably agree!
As his support rider, this means I will be riding 112 miles per day so my fitness goals have been structured around this for the last 5 months. More on this in future blogs. In the meantime, I’ll be following a progressive plan of exercise, eating for Britain (all healthy and clean) and supplementing my diet with Forever’s fantastic products.
