Kev goes flat-out

Kevin took to the hills of the Fenlands as he entered the Flat Out in the Fens annual sportive with the choice of 77, 112 or 154 miles (Sunday 17th June, 2012). He says: As it was Father’s day and my daughter promised to buy me a pint in the pub, I of course opted for the 77 miles. However this was very tough as the wind seemed to be head-on from all directions. Setting off with an average speed in excess of 20mph I soon realised that the peloton could do without my help and I elected to go at a more sensible pace. All three distances came through Willingham, so time to drop-off the excess clothes and waterproof jacket to the loving wife who waited for me to come up Berrycroft (see photo!). A reasonable time of 4 hours and 32 minutes was achieved; I just missed out on the gold standard which was 4 hours and 20 minutes. Oh well there is always next year….

Well done Kev, it may be flat but its pretty long and exposed. Missed it this year, felt a bit guilty, so went out for a 50 miler locally, once the wind had dropped ;-) We should hook up for next year and go for gold!
