If I can get my legs in better shape, then yes I would give it a go too, but not around here, too many hills on my side of Southampton and the pollution is often very bad. Give the girl a pat on the back from me, and I hope her effort inspires others.

At an average speed of 2.9 mph she worked her socks off, I know because I have done that speed and know what it feels like. I am in awe of her doing it for 26 miles. Now I know that it can be done..........the gauntlet has been thrown down.

There's no need for lots of conversations let us know when your ready and you can always bring the Mrs when it's one of her weekends off something to do and plan x
