On 5 June at around 8:45 in the morning, I completed the first leg of my gruelling 2016 challenge. The stats for that ride and a picture taken immediately after the finish are below.
3,000 or more people took part in the ride that started and ended at the London Olympic Park velodrome. Traffic was heavy – there was an ACDC concert turning out from the Olympic stadium which clogged up the roads and more traffic lights to stop at than you can imagine. But a perfect night for cycling and a great start to my challenge.
Here is the route and the stats
Here are the pictures of the night (well some of them)
