On the road again…

We were getting pretty tired by this pointWe are really loving our cycling. So much so that on Sunday we decided to tackle one of the classic British trips — London to the seaside town of Brighton. We weren’t sure if we’d make it, to be honest, but somehow our legs held out for all 130km of cycling. Yes, that’s right, 130km or about 80 miles down the National Cycle Networks 20 and 21. Phew! Many people start from just inside the M25 but we started from the Thames, thus the slightly longer distance. We were really impressed with how well signed the route was until Crawley, but from Crawley onward it got really difficult. We highly recommend the Sustrans map if you’re going to attempt this one. Some stats:

* We spent 7 hours 49 minutes on our bikes pedalling
* We averaged 16.2km/hour
* Our fastest speed was 43.5km/hour
* We went a total of 127.66km
* We started at about 8am from the Cutty Sark in Greenwich and reached Brighton Pier at just past 6pm
