Tuesday 3rd June: BikeDemCrew, London to Brighton

The Cyclists of RunDemcrew have made an offshoot "BikeDemCrew" and been going on long distance rides the last few weekends in preparation for the Dunwich Dynamo next month.  It's become apparent that the mountain bike I've had since I was 12 is not quite up to speed (literally) so I have finally caved in and invested in a proper road bike from Hackney Peddlers.  Just in time for the London to Brighton ride that we made on Sunday!  It took the best part of the day to scale the many hills that route the course, not to mention the vertical slant of Ditchling Beacon.  Fish 'n' Chips and a 99 ice-cream on the beach was a very welcome and joyous celebration at the end of the 54 miles!
