SWRC Randonnee and Martin Johnson

The weather held and the ride was fantastic. Not quite as fast as last year but I still came in with computer showing 18.8mph due entirely to being with a youngster who pushed the pace along for the flatter sections. On the final climbs I was well and truly dropped and did not see him again until the finish. Still managed to do the last 20 miles in an hour which was exhausting but pleasing.
At the halfway check I got a text message asking me to be back home, well at the Rugby Club by 2:30 which gave me almost exactly 3 hours so I did not stop for a Cup of Tea instead pressing on with the youngster. I made it to the club at 2:10, in plenty of time to see my Son receive the prize for most improved player in the under 7 team. The prize was presented by Martin Johnson who had run the last training session of the season. (Unfortunately the picture is copyright so I can't share.) Martin Johnson was really great signing anything for anyone.
