BHF Goodwood Ride

The bikes all loaded up ready for Goodwood
A couple of weeks ago I took part in the second annual Goodwood Ride for the British Heart Foundation.

The ride starts at 10am so we didn't have to get up at the crack of dawn.

It's a nice family friendly event where you can ride without traffic on a closed circuit. It suitable for all abilities and is almost flat with only a few undulations.

I was suffering from a trapped nerve in my shoulder so wasn't sure how many laps I would be able to complete. Last year I managed 21. Whilst on the bike my shoulder wasn't a problem. I completed one shy of last year in the end, 20.

My wife an two boys joined me for the second time to take part and raise money for the BHF. My youngest son did better than last year and my wife and eldest son matched their previous efforts.

If you would like to donate some money for our efforts, however small, please visit Thank you.

  1. Just watched your video of the Olympic Road race in your last post - I posted some similar videos from the women's marathon as they whizzed past!

    Great picture of your son on the bike - he is obviously following in your footsteps.

  2. I just saw your videos. That's the only issue with watching on the streets, you don't get to see them for long!


Thank you for taking the time to comment
