Verulam CC’s Chiltern 100

With my bike (and nerves) back in one piece, I set off on the first of four planned cyclosportives yesterday, in wonderful sunshine; the countryside was full of people doing ‘normal’ Sunday things along with the 120 or so of us deciding to thrash ourselves round some of the toughest hills the Chilterns could throw at us. The Verulam CC’s Chiltern 100 starts of with some deceptively comfortable fast bits, before settling down into hill after hill after hill. Managed to get round in 6 hours and 2 minutes, just missing out on the sub 6 hour ‘gold standard’, but it’s not supposed to be a race and I ‘enjoyed’ myself (apart from on Kingston Blount).
