As lockdown restrictions ease, make a date to catch up during our celebration of cycling Among the many things we have missed during lockdown, meeting up with friends in person has often been one of the hardest to go without. Getting out on a bike with a friend or a group of mates is a great way to catch up, have a chat, get some exercise – and maybe find an excuse to stop for a drink or a bite to eat, now pub gardens and outdoor cafés are opening up again.
That definitely felt real. Eight Spartans headed north for Peterborough Marathon on Sunday morning. This was essentially a flat race but with some awkward turns and muddy sections. A bit of a nagging head wind in places but all the Spartans finished in the dry before the day’s deluge began.

He took on the 20 mile challenge as a training run towards the Peterborough Marathon next month and came away with a 2 hours 48 minutes 51 seconds time which was a personal best (PB) by over 3 minutes.
