Neil,

Thanks for that, I was off no.23 too, so maybe it was an omen! Andy Wilkinson broke his previous record by about 2 miles, and on the day this was an incredible ride. The rain held off too, but there was a nagging wind that got up during the day and hung around for most of the event. This a PB for me by just over 5 miles.
I just want to say thanks ever so much too to Malcolm Horner from Warrington RC for his unstinting roadside assistance right up to the last lap when he talked me into riding to the next timekeeper just to run my time out, when I was all for turning into the car park at the Raven and calling it a day - without his help and advice I wouldn't have made it! Thanks also to the crowd (not sure who they were) who kept shouting my name, and words of encouragement, outside a pub (could be the Bull and Dog Inn?)on the finishing circuit.

Steve
