I did the 52 mile on the £5 scrap man find. Managed a time of 02:45:22 landing me 640th. Which I thought it was quite a respectable time, for a fat bloke on a 19year old bike costing less than a pair of inner tubes.
There was a bloke who rode with me for a short while, who said he could tell my bike only costs a fiver. C0ck!
Good fun, and am definitely doing it next year. I think they will adjust the Lowry section as it was a just too narrow really.
Got the Manchester to Blackpool run on the 8th July. Hopefully I can offend more people on my Stig ride. That is Stig of the dump, not the Top Gear Stig
