COAST TO COAST ONE

Myself and Paul Wardle did this in May 2005, I had this hair brained idea that it may be easy enough to do what was described as a four day ride in one day unsupported. We were going to do it for charity but did not in the end because another local team was doing a coast to coast at the same time over four days and I thought we might hamper their fundraising. I got my mate Chris at Edison Cycles to drop us off in the morning at Hull and booked a taxi to pick us up in Runcorn at 11:30pm that night. Why a taxi? Well up until a few days before a mate was supposed to be collecting us but he backed out with a more important task in mind, so..  taxi. We carried all we thought we would need for the day, food, drink, tubes, tyres, lights, chain, deraileur etc in our camelbaks, they were bloody heavy but we gradually lightened them by eating through them. We managed to do it in 17:30 hours just a few minutes late for our taxi, then slept like babies all the way home.

  1. However you have to make sure that when you buy rolex replica uk you have to buy it on a reliable dealer that sells quality replica diamond watch. Luxury are not for the wealthy alone, for everyone has the right to have hublot replica sale things they want. Although the original thing may be very expensive and not everyone can afford them ordinary people still have the right to have tag heuer replica uk thing it's just that they should considered their budget and settle for rolex replica sale with a good quality rather than force themselves to buy the original one and end up bankrupt. People also need to be practical and give priority for the things they need and just buy the things that they want when they have extra money for it. Still at the end of the day nothing beats the quality of fake breitling sale.
